Singing Our Journey: Sängerfest 2023

Chorister Information

Join the Choir

Membership in the choir is open to all. There will be no auditions. Interested singers are asked to fill out the chorister application below and submit it before February 15. When the choir membership has been determined you will be sent a choir registration form around mid-March The reason for this process is to arrive at a balanced choir for the number of spaces we will have. We are hoping for an adult choir of over 200 voices and hope that all who wish to sing can be included. So, help us make sure that there will be sizable sections of tenors and basses!

Fees

We are asking all Adult Choir singers to contribute $20, and Youth Choir members $10; there is no fee for Treble Voices singers. This will cover basic administrative and music expenses. Means for making this payment will be shared via email in March.
