The Open Door Chorus

We are a no audition, open Community Chorus. Anyone can attend whenever they can. There are no requirements for age or ability. Music-reading ability is not required. We will be using music sheets and lyric sheets to the extent that they are useful to the individual singers,  but always have some completely "by ear" pieces at every session.

Repertoire is also open although we tend to choose pieces that reflect positive social values, ethnic diversity, and are from the "folky" world. If we choose to sing a piece that represents a particular faith or belief system (Like a traditional gospel tune), we will balance that selection with choices representing a diversity of faiths.
The sessions as having three types of material.
1. Warmups, and easy warmup songs
2. Working pieces
3. Songs for fun

We take a short break in the session, and some folks choose to bring snacks and drinks.
