Sing With Onion River Chorus
New singers are welcome to join ORC in the beginning of the fall (September) and spring (January) terms. Though there is no audition required some sight reading experience is essential. Information about the first rehearsal of each term will be posted on this page several weeks in advance.
At the first rehearsal singers will sign in, pay for dues and music, and pick up their music. Dues are $75.00 and payable each term. Music fees are variable, depending on the program, but generally run about $25.00 or less. For singers with financial hardship a payment schedule can be arranged. Singers can also apply for a partial scholarship. Inquiries about this can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
New singers can also choose to borrow music without paying dues for the first rehearsal to “try ORC on for size” before making a financial commitment. Payment for both dues and music is due at the second rehearsal if the singer decides to continue.
Rehearsals are every MONDAY 7-9PM at Christ Church, 64 State St. Montpelier, VT, upstairs in the Taplin Auditorium.
ORC does not officially keep an attendance log but singers are expected to make a serious commitment to come to rehearsal each week. As a general rule, a singer with more than 3 absences each term should discuss their situation with the conductor.
