New Century Chorale holds a New Member Orientation night every August. While we ask that you take the time commitment seriously, we do not have formal auditions. You will simply meet one-on-one with our Artistic Director and participate in some vocal exercises and sight reading to place you in the proper voice section. Additionally, several NCC members are on hand to answer questions. We would love to have you join us!
Other than voice quality and sight-reading ability, the only other requirements are that you are at least 18 years old; possess an enthusiasm for singing and a willingness to commit to the general requirements for rehearsals and performances. While there are some financial commitments related to dues and proper attire, the Chorale will work with anyone who needs assistance to ensure these costs do not become a burden.
NCC rehearses on Mondays from 7:00 p.m. till 9:00 p.m., beginning the first Monday after Labor Day and continuing through the final concert in May, excepting those that fall during holidays. Concerts include A Harvest of Song in November, Yuletide Festival in December and a spring concert held in May. Additional performances may be added, with the agreement of the chorale members.
Every attempt will be made to meet the schedules of those interested. Anyone wishing to join New Century Chorale is asked to Email Us. Please provide your name, voice part (if known), contact information (phone and email) and availability.
