Become a Member

The Bristol Chorale welcomes all vocal ranges and abilities for either or both of its seasons (Fall/Winter and/or Spring). New members may join at any point up to the fourth rehearsal of the current season. No audition is required, but assistance is available if you need to determine the appropriate voice part for you. We present two annual concerts, one in May and one in December.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings at St. Andrew Church Fellowship Hall on Stafford Avenue in Bristol. We begin promptly at 6:45 p.m. and rehearse until 9 p.m., with a short break at the discretion of the director.

Membership Dues

Membership dues, which offset operating expenses (cost of music, salaries, rehearsal and performance spaces, program printing, etc.), are assessed seasonally. Dues are nonrefundable and due by the fourth week of rehearsals for that season. Currently, dues are $55 per member.

Attendance

Attendance at a minimum of 75 percent of scheduled rehearsals is required to be eligible to perform in a concert; however, attendance at all rehearsals is encouraged to obtain the best performance. Exceptions to the attendance policy are made at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors with input from the music director.

Concert Attire

Members are responsible for the cost of their concert attire. Click here for a photo and more information on costs and ordering. The Chorale offers members additional, optional singing opportunities throughout the year, including carol sings and sporting events. Those who choose to participate are responsible for the cost of a casual polo shirt, which is required attire. Click here for a photo and more information on costs and ordering.

The Bristol Chorale’s 2024 Spring season began on Monday, January 15, 2024. Although not yet decided, the Fall/Winter start date will be in early September.

We cordially invite you to attend a rehearsal to see if we are a good fit for you. And, of course, we hope you’ll choose to stay!
