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.
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!
There is a smaller chamber 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.
Choir members are also given 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.
We rehearse weekly on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 at Central United Methodist Church in the Education Building, 8237 N. Kenton Ave in Skokie. Occasionally we have extra rehearsal dates or will rehearse at other locations; such changes are announced to the choir in advance. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
