Our Plans for the 2015-2016 Season
As already mentioned, we will be based at the Community Church of Vero Beach for the season, and if you are not familiar with it you can pull up a map by clicking the link on the left.
Our rehearsals for the Fall program begin on August 31, and continue every Monday evening at 7 PM (with the exception of September 7) until the performances. The concert, featuring the Faure Requiem and done in conjunction with Rosewood Magnet Elementary School, will take place at the Community Church at 7 PM on Friday, November 20, with a second performance at the First Presbyterian Church at 3 PM on Sunday, November 22. Regulars should note we have changed the time on Friday.
Other dates to note include taking part in a Seasonal Celebration at the Community Church on December 13, and participating with Vero Beach Opera in a production of Die Fledermaus on January 10, 2016.
We look forward to an exciting season!

Become a part of Vero's cultural community.
We're looking for singers in all voice parts with sight reading ability and musical skills. Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings in the season, and auditions will be at 6:30 PM on September 14 and 21, 2015, before the regular rehearsals. The audition will be the Libera Me section from the Requiem, and here is a link to the video (which has the music illustrated).
Here is a link to a PDF score for reference, full scores will be available at the rehearsal.
The Next Concert
Our next concert will be in November, on the 20th and 22nd. We will be singing the Fauré Requiem, among other pieces, and will be collaborating with the Rosewood Magnet Elementary School for this production.
Their children's chorus will be joining us, and their Director, JoAnn Palmer, will also be taking on the soprano solo in the Fauré. There will be other pieces, both with the combined choirs and separately, and these are still being finalised.
We are looking forward to extending our partnerships in the community, having sung with the Indian River Charter High School in the Spring to great reviews. Our scholarship program assists individual students, and developing alliances for joint performances with local educators furthers our goals.
