The Chesapeake Chorale rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:30-9 pm at Christian Community Presbyterian Church on Belair Drive in Bowie, from September through May. The Chamber singers rehearse from 7:00-7:30.
Auditions & Dues
Singers must pass an audition with the Artistic Director, and will re-audition every other year. Auditions include vocalizing, sight-singing and basic pitch recognition. Prepared solo pieces are not required.
Members pay annual dues, which are currently $85. Members also pay for their own music.
Chorale Scholars Program
The Chesapeake Chorale Scholars Program is designed for talented student singers to participate in the Chorale. The program began in 1997-1998 season, and we have had over 45 students participate, a majority from local high schools. A third of them have sung with us for more than one season. Several have continued to sing with us from high school through college, and after finishing their college education. Several have completed their college education in music, and are continuing their own musical legacy.
