Welcome! Rehearsals for the Fall semester begin on Wednesday September 9th.
If you would like to join us, all you have to do is show up! If for some reason you cannot make the 9th, we will also be accepting new members on September 16th. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 at Old First Church in Park Slope, corner of 7th Avenue and Carroll Street (side entrance on Carroll Street, upstairs). Come a little early and be sure to sign in and introduce yourself. We have an exciting year planned!
The Brooklyn Community Chorus is a non-audition choir! If, however, you are interested in auditioning for our smaller chamber choir (typically rehearses following the general choir rehearsal from 9:30-10pm), auditions will be held on September 9th and 16th at 9:30. The audition will consist of singing measures 1-26 of Monteverdi’s “Cantate Domino”, which can be found here.
Make sure you subscribe to our email list to be notified of other upcoming events.
Any questions? Email our artistic director Steve Coburn.
The Brooklyn Community Chorus is an independent community choir in Park Slope, Brooklyn. It is open to anyone who loves to sing a variety of music, both sacred and secular, classical and popular, historic and contemporary. All ages are welcome; no auditions are needed.
We draw our conductors and soloists from within the chorus and from the local community. Our choice of repertoire is often determined by popular consent of the group rather than imposed by a single music director.
It is this spirit of democratic community that makes the Brooklyn Community Chorus unique, and a truly community organization.
If you are interested in getting notifications about upcoming semesters or performances, please join our email list on the right hand side of the page. If you have any additional questions about the BCC, feel free and email one of our conductors, Steve Coburn.
