BIG ARTS COMMUNITY CHORUS REHEARSALS

BIG ARTS Community Chorus is a non-auditioned choral class open to singers of all ages and abilities. The only requirement is a love of singing and a commitment to attending weekly rehearsals.

Goals of the Chorus are:

  • to provide opportunities for musical growth and creative self-expression through choral singing
  • to develop an appreciation of various musical styles
  • to refine choral skills through group performance, thereby improving self-confidence in vocal production
  • to have fun!
