Membership in the Jefferson Choral Society is open to anyone high school age and up with experience in choral music. New singers are always welcome, and we invite you to attend the next open rehearsal. Please be sure to let us know you plan to attend by emailing email@example.com
Our 2022-2023 season runs through Memorial Day weekend of May 2023. Auditions for the remainder of the season are scheduled by attending an open rehearsal on December 5 for our February 26 Best of Broadway concert or on February 27 for our April 30 Jesus, Son of Our Father concert.
When: 6:45 pm, December 5, 2022, or February 27, 2023. Rehearsal is from 7 to 9 pm.
Where:Timberlake United Methodist Church, 21649 Timberlake Road, Lynchburg 24502. Come around to the back of the church and enter through the doors under the portico. See map below.
Welcome: A member of the choir will meet you at the doors and shepherd you through the check-in process for new singers. Then a veteran singer will warmly welcome you and show you to a seat in your chosen vocal section.
Paperwork: You will be given several forms to fill out, or if you prefer, you may print and complete the forms emailed to you prior to the rehearsal and bring them with you.
Music: You will receive a packet of music to use for the evening and return before you leave.
Auditions: If you enjoy the rehearsal and would like to pursue membership, you may speak to Music Director Aaron Garber or President Martha Coffey during our rehearsal break, which is usually around 8:00. A brief audition will be scheduled either immediately following the rehearsal or right before the next rehearsal. During your private audition Aaron will ask you to sing a hymn while he accompanies you, allowing him to place you in the correct section.
