JOIN THE CHORUS
The BMC typically has 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 June)
Pop to Pride, Billboard hits and Broadway's best
Summer Cabaret (July to Aug)
Musicals and Pop (including solos and small groups)
Rehearsals for the upcoming season are from
7:00 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 23, 2023 at 7PM!
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 of dues 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.
The BMC holds rehearsal at 7:00 pm on
Saint Mark's Lutheran Church
1900 St. Paul Street,
Baltimore, MD 21218
Parking is available across the street (access
on E. 20th street).
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.
