Membership is open and non-auditioned.
We welcome all singers 13 years of age and above.
Our All-Call Events are held at the end of January and July, and are intended to kick off each semester of rehearsals. They are a fun, informal way to hear more about us, what we do, and how we do it. The events include light refreshments, ice breaker activities, the possibility of some (light) sight-singing, and of course ALL the preliminary information information about each semester, including the musical theme and concert benefactor.
Follow us on Facebook to find out the date for our next all-call.
Rehearsals and attendance
V.O.I.C.E. rehearsals are weekly on Sundays, from 5:30 to 8pm. We do not rehearse on the weekends of major holidays (i.e. Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day). The exception is the Sunday following Thanksgiving.
In order for us to provide the highest-quality entertainment possible, rehearsal attendance is expected. However, we know life can get in the way. Members are expected to attend at least 75% of rehearsals in order to participate in concerts.
semesters and concerts
Performance seasons follow the calendar year, but are divided into semesters: February to June and August to December. We take a break late December-January, and late June-July.
We hold our Summer concert in mid-June, and our Christmas concert in mid-December. Each concert takes place over a single weekend, with one performance Saturday evening, and a second performance Sunday afternoon.
Our concerts are themed, memorized, and (lightly) choreographed and staged. Our music spans genres and themes such as Broadway, Disney, Country, and 'Glee', as well as other chart toppers. Musical experience in the organization ranges from novice to seasoned singers, and music is performed in coed harmonies, ranging from 3-8 parts. Concerts are performed with a minimum 3-piece combo band, that includes keys, guitar/bass, and drums.
V.O.I.C.E isn't just a volunteer group that I sing in. It's been my family since day one. They have watched me grow and helped me with problems, and literally been with me through all my ups and downs. I love them each and every one. LOVE YOU GUYS!! - Facebook Review
