Participation is open to singers age 14 and older. We invite singers
- with a passion for musical expression
- willing and able to make a committment to rehearsals and performances
- with some experience (members range in levels of ability, from strong sight readers to those with good musical memories!)
- or with a desire to learn, grow, and participate in a developing musical organization.
Membership in BCC requires a commitment to attend weekly rehearsals and the extra pre-performance rehearsals.
We also require the payment of dues, which we use to pay an accompanist, purchase music, rent rehearsal space, advertise, and purchase equipment such as risers.
Current dues are $100 for the fall term and $100 for the spring term. It is also expected that members will sell a certain number of tickets to each concert. Financial assistance is provided for those singers that need aid.
We accept new members during the first two weeks of each term. We do not have formal auditions. Prospective members are invited to sing with us for several rehearsals—free of charge—and make a responsible personal decision about their musical ability in relation to the group.
