Please contact Nancy Plantinga at or (616) 405-3399 if you are interested in singing with the chorus. Auditions for the fall session take place at the beginning of August. Auditions for the spring session take place at the beginning of February.

Expectations for Chorus Members:

  • Expenses/concert attire. Each member pays a $50 participation fee for each session (spring and fall). There is also a one-time purchase of concert attire: $20 for blouses or shirts. The chorus provides neckwear, as well as skirts and vests. Members must provide their own black slacks.
  • Attendance. Rehearsal attendance is essential to achieve a quality performance level. Rehearsals begin just after Labor Day, ending with the holiday concert in early December. They resume in early March and end with the spring concert.
  • Preparation. Members are expected to practice and learn their music in between rehearsals. A variety of tools are provided by the director and on the website ( to assist with home practice; e.g., CDs and digital recordings of each song with individual vocal parts prominently played/heard.
