Is there a cost to join Voca Lyrica? Each member pays yearly membership dues, which are currently $85 per adult. The current student fee is $35. Other possible costs include purchase of a music folder and concert CD.
What experience or skills should I have in order to join Voca Lyrica? Voca Lyrica welcomes women who have a passion for singing. Previous choral experience is preferred.
When and how long are rehearsals? Prior to the beginning of each singing season, members receive a rehearsal schedule via e-mail. Most rehearsals are on Sunday evenings, and last approximately 2.5 hours. All rehearsals begin at 6 pm unless otherwise noted. Occasionally we have intensive rehearsals from 4 until approximately 8:30, with a potluck dinner in the middle. Voice sections take turns bringing the food. This is a great chance to get to know fellow Voca Lyrica members. We begin each rehearsal with physical and vocal warm-ups to prepare our “instrument” for the rigorous rehearsal. Singers are expected to listen and participate actively, and come prepared with a pencil for marking music. It is recommended that you stay well hydrated before and during rehearsals. Most rehearsals take place in the choir room (basement) of the United Church.
