The Skokie Concert Choir welcomes all vocal parts: Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass.
We do not hold formal auditions, but prior singing experience is a plus. Our director will be happy to place you in the correct section if you are not sure of your vocal range. Please Contact Us with any questions, and more information on our Rehearsals.
Our members come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds ranging from semi-professional to individuals who haven’t sung since high school to individuals whose only experience consists of serenading the shower curtain! To some members reading music is second nature; others have very little ability to read. In other words, if you love to sing, you’ll be a welcome addition to our group!
Membership dues are collected at the beginning of each semester, September and February.
There are two components: Dues plus a $15 Music Fee for All Levels:
- BASIC – ($70 + $15) = $85
- SUPPORTING – ($90 + $15) = $105
- SUSTAINING – ($130 + $15) = $145
At all levels, the membership fee includes 2 tickets that will be given to each member before the concert. Dues go toward paying for the conductor, accompanist, rent, insurance, concert and other expenses. Supporting and Sustaining dues provide additional resources and have allowed the basic dues to remain the same over many years, despite increased operational costs.
Chamber Choir (“The Treblemakers”)
This is a smaller group within the choir, whose members are selected by audition. This group performs more challenging pieces and rehearses from 9:00-9:30 following the full-group rehearsal each Monday night. There is an additional fee of $25 for individuals participating in the chamber choir.
Solos and Small Ensembles
Choir members have the opportunity to perform a solo of their choosing or to form small ensembles to perform at each concert. Soloists and ensembles are selected by an audition committee and are expected to provide their own accompanist and practice on their own.
