Membership

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

Expectations for Chorus Members:

  • Expenses/concert attire. Each member pays a $45 participation fee for each session (spring and fall). There is also a one-time purchase of concert attire: $20 for women’s blouses or men’s shirts. The chorus provides neckwear, as well as skirts for women and vests for men. Men 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 (lakeshorecommunitychorus.org) to assist with home practice; e.g., CDs and digital recordings of each song with individual vocal parts prominently played/heard.
