The choir will rehearse every Monday from 7:30 - 9:00 PM (some days will start at 8:00pm, see complete schedule below) at RTAA in Downtown Roseville. The registration fee is $300 for this season and payment plans are available. This new season begins January 7th, and culminates with our concert scheduled July 14th. Commitment for the entire season is expected upon sign up.
Choir members will receive instruction from directors Sandra Gallegos and Kevin Long, whom are classically trained choral professionals. You will greatly increase your music reading abilities and learn proper vocal techniques for singing. You will learn to harmonize and create beautiful choral music with friends and fellow members of the community. You will also learn to follow a conductor while singing in a variety of musical styles.
