ANYONE CAN JOIN US FOR A FINAL SEASON! NO AUDITION REQUIRED! 


Some basic information about the chorale:

The Chorale rehearses on Monday nights from 7pm-9pm at St. John UCC in Collinsville. Concerts are presented 4 times a year. We perform a pops concert in October, a Christmas Concert in December, a Spirituals and sacred music concert in March and a patriotic and folk music concert in June. Concerts are typically at 7pm on Friday evenings. Occasionally, the Chorale will present the same concert at a different location on the Sunday following the home concert at 3pm. We feel this is an opportunity to take our music outside of our community. 

The Chorale is funded four ways: by audience contributions at concerts, program advertisement sales, patron sponsorships and member dues. For each concert, members pay $25 for their music. They are due before the first evening of our rehearsal cycles. The chorale rehearses 6 times before each concert, 5 Mondays and a Thursday night dress rehearsal right before the concert.

Chorale attire is all black. Men wear black pants and a shirt, along with a long blue or gray tie. Women wear either black pants or skirt and a black top, or a black dress along with a blue or gray scarf. Ties and scarves are provided by the Chorale.
