Our non-auditioned chorus is designed to be both fun and excellent! Learn from a professional director, as we sing many different types of music (“Something for everybody”). It’s for students 9 years old and up, including parents and older family members. By including the older singers, we can give the experience of being in a fuller chorus with the richness of tone that provides.
We’ll sing mostly in 2- and 3- part arrangements, and we’ll perform at least once during the semester. Members are expected to learn most of their music at home, and we’ll provide rehearsal tracks for that purpose.
A Code of Conduct agreement is required for this course. This helps to ensure the positive environment in each class. This document is being updated and will be published this summer.
Mondays, 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
The Fall semester runs from Monday, September 13, 2021 through December 13, with our final concert on December 13th and 14th
Our final concert will be performed twice. This gives the students more of a sense of performance, and more of a finale to the season, after working hard all semester to learn the repertoire. Our concerts will feature Homeschool Glee Club and Freedom Choir together on the same program. Each will have its separate part in the program, and will also come together for one concert number. They will also sing together on six Christmas numbers in an audience singalong segment. The show dates are as follows:
Monday and Tuesday, December 13th and 14th.
Show starts at 6:30 pm. Done by 8:30.
Location: Yellowstone Christian College Chapel
1515 S Shiloh Rd Billings, MT 59102
Singers should report at 5:30 sharp.
The fee for this course is $50 per student for the semester. This is our discounted rate, so there is no payment plan or large family discount.
Sheet music will be provided, and is loaned to each student, to be returned. Please do note the concert dress code just below.
CHORUS DRESS CODE
We have a dress code for our concerts, because we are cool like that! All chorus members are expected to dress in all black as follows:
Boys/Men: Black slacks. Black belt and black shoes. Black long-sleeve, button-down shirts.
Girls/Women: Black bottoms of modest length, whether slacks, skirts, or dresses. Modest black tops, long or short sleeve. Sequins or other sparklies are OK, provided they do not change the color from the basic black look. NOTE: Ballroom gowns are too fancy for this event, and would stick out. Meanwhile, cowboy boots and hats with all black are too un-fancy, and would stick out in the opposite way!
This course will be canceled if we have fewer than 16 registrations.
This course meets, as do all our courses, in the We, Montana! Great Room.
