Preparations for the Spring Concert, which is Mendelssohn's Elijah with a full
orchestra and professional soloists. As this is a hefty and expensive concert to perform,
it is less accessible to local choirs or small choral ensembles. If you would like to
join us for this very special opportunity to perform this great choral work, we are
looking for extra singers of all voice parts.
Come to our open rehearsal, try us out, and then schedule your audition with our friendly
music director. Please see our website for more information.
