A Community Choir in North Perth
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I participate in just the fall term, or just the winter term?
Our season runs from September to April, and we prefer the stability of people participating in both terms. However, you can participate in only one term, and pay half the fee.
What are attendance expectations?
It is okay to miss a few rehearsals. Minimum attendance to stay in the choir is half of the rehearsals for a concert - 7 of 13 fall rehearsals, and 8 of 15 winter rehearsals. If you need to miss some rehearsals, talk to us about it. Even if you need to miss a main concert, it's possible to be a member of the choir, as part of our purpose is to create community through music.
How often does the choir perform?
We have one main concert each term, and also do some free community performances in the last few weeks before the main concert. In our first term, we did four community performances.
Will we have any other major expenses in the first year, like matching outfits or travel?
There are no major expenses or travel expenses this year. Choir members decided to wear black with matching scarves in four colours for our main concerts. The additional cost for our winter 2018 term was $5 per chorister. For our free concerts, the dress code is black bottoms and tops in certain solid seasonal colours.
When is the membership fee due?
Payment for those joining in January is due by the second rehearsal, January 15, so we know how many committed members we have to order sheet music. If this would be difficult for you, please talk to us about it.
Can I sing a solo at choir concerts?
Choir members may be invited to sing a solo, or sing in a small ensemble. Members who would like to volunteer to sing a certain solo can audition to be included in our concerts. Our Christmas concert included several solos, a duet, and a trio.
