First rehearsal –  Wednesday, September 13th at 7:00 p.m
St. Lucy’ Catholic Church on West Main Rd. in Middletown

- All rehearsals are at St Lucy Church unless otherwise noted
- There are no formal auditions, but our director will want to hear you sing to place you into a section
- It is helpful if you can read music, but this is not a requirement.
- All chorus members are expected to also become familiar with their parts outside of Rehearsal

All singers are welcome to attend the first two rehearsals – to meet our Director, Ed Milham, and to find out more about the Chorus  – the music we sing and the enjoyment that can be had by being a part of a respected and experienced chorus.
