FAQs

Why is there a membership fee?  Like all recreational activities, community choirs have dues, and ours are well below average. Running a choir costs a lot!  The good news is, we are a registered charity so members’ dues are tax deductible. Please see our donation page for more details on our finances.

Can my child join the choir? Yes, but if your child is 12 or under, they must be accompanied to all rehearsals and performances by an adult. A parent or guardian must sign the registration form of anyone under 18.

On the Registration Form, what is a Section Leader/Accompanist? During rehearsal, we sometimes break into voice sections for more efficient learning of our individual parts. If you read music well and could lead the group, and/or play a keyboard, you might want to volunteer for this.

Which voice part should I choose on the Registration Form?

Here is a graphic showing general ranges. If you don’t have access to a piano, you can play these notes here – click on “octaves” to add more notes. If you still can’t decide, you can try out different sections until you find a good fit.

If I join, can you ensure my anonymity online? While we can keep your name out of the concert program and off our website, you will be performing in public, and anyone in the choir or audience may take your picture and post it on social media. We also record each concert, and it is sometimes shown on local TV.  That’s why we require each new member to sign our Privacy Policy and Release of Information forms.
