What types of memberships are available to me?

  • Virtual Membership:  Geography is not an issue with this membership!  You can join us online every Monday as a part of our chorus, receiving music/learning tracks, participating in all educational events, and enjoying opportunities to sing in virtual chorus projects.  This membership is associate only.
  • OOTer (Out of Towner) Membership:  This member will participate fully in virtual chorus rehearsals and will transfer to in-person rehearsals when they occur.  Because these members are long-distance, they will participate in a combination of in-person and online rehearsals in the future.
  • Member:  This membership is for those who are geographically close enough to join in-person rehearsals, when those occur in the future.  These members will attend virtual rehearsals until the transition to in-person rehearsals.
