Schedule: Spring 2023
Rehearsals began on Tuesday, February 7th at Union Congregational Church, 176 Cooper Ave, Montclair, and will continue weekly through Tuesday, April 18th. Rehearsals will run from 8 pm until 10 pm; we will open early at 7:30 pm for the first rehearsal so that new members can register with our Trustee for Membership and everyone can purchase music. During concert week, we will rehearse on Tuesday, April 25th and Friday, April 28th from 7 pm until 10 pm at the concert venue TBD.
After very careful consideration, the Board has determined that it is in the best health interests for our group that for the Spring 2023 season we continue to require that singers wear masks to rehearsals due to recent up-ticks in cases of both COVID-19 and flu. We will also continue to require up to date vaccinations, which now will include at least one booster.
We will continue to monitor the situation and certainly hope for some relief soon.
Auditions are NOT required, the ability to read music is extremely beneficial. Full year dues remain at $75 and half-year dues are $40. Cost for music this Spring will be confirmed before the first rehearsal.
