  • You will be asked to fill out an information form so that we can contact you.
  • A member of the Directing Team will do a preliminary evaluation to determine your ability to sing in tune and your range capability in order to place you in the part that best suits your voice. 
  • You will be given a Guest folder with music and will stand next to a section leader who will take care of you and guide you through your first rehearsal with us!
  • After rehearsal, you will meet briefly with the Membership Coordinator, the Directing Team member who did your evaluation, and the section leader you stood by to make sure any questions you have can be answered.

Second Visit:
