JOIN THE CHORUS
We have three seasons during the year during which new members are always welcome:
Classical Choral (Sep to Dec)
Secular and non-secular favorites!
Contemporary Choral (Jan to April)
Pop to Pride, Billboard hits and Broadway's best
Summer Cabaret (May to Aug)
Musicals and Pop (including solos and small groups)
Rehearsals for the upcoming season are from
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM on Mondays. New members are welcome to join during the first 2-3 weeks of each season and our next New Member Mixer is on January 13, 2020 at 7:00 PM!
Rehearsals are located at Memorial Episcopal in Bolton Hill.
Parking is available in the neighborhood (be mindful of parking pass restrictions). Enter through the red door of Farnham Hall on Lafayette Ave.
AUDITIONS AND PARTICIPATION
While we do not have formal auditions to join the BMC, the musical director will discretely assess your vocal range (to place you in the appropriate section of the chorus). We represent a broad range of musical ability and training.
We understand that our members have busy lives and commitments, but we feel attendance is very important. As such, all members are expected to attend at least 80% of rehearsals.
As we are a non-profit organization consisting of volunteer members, in order to cover administrative expenses such as our director/accompanist, music purchases, etc., we ask members to contribute a small amount ofdues per week of rehearsal (payable weekly or in advance). Semester dues are based on the length of the semester and are announced at the first rehearsal.
Dues are not meant to deter membership - we care more to have your voices and personalities than your money - alternate arrangements may be made with the treasurer on an as needed basis.
