Join Us!

We are always looking for new members of all ages! We usually have two sessions per year, spring and fall. It is best to join early in the season to learn the songs well.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are weekly on Sundays, generally 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM at the Iowa City Senior Center.

We ask members to make rehearsals a priority so that the choir can make good progress. We understand that a few conflicts are unavoidable; please let Jean know in advance if you are going to have to miss rehearsal.

Fees

There is a session fee of $25 per adult and $10 per child (over age 5), with a cap of $70 per family. Children five and under are free but are welcome to participate as much as they wish. Each family with children under age 10 will also be asked to contribute $20 toward paying the babysitter for the session. The session fee will be due at the first rehearsal of the season. Please note: if you feel you cannot afford the session fee, speak with Jean and we can offer you a reduced fee. The fees help us cover our costs but should not present a barrier to membership.

Children

Children of all ages are welcome at our rehearsals and performances. The kids will rehearse as a group for the first 30 or so minutes at each weekly rehearsal. The children will then remain in the same room as the adults, and parents are ultimately responsible for their children. We will have a babysitter to help supervise the kids, and we’ll have some toys and activities to keep the kids engaged. Kids are always welcome to sing with the adults if they wish.
