Health guidelines will be in effect with physically distanced seating. Singers are not to share music, or touch any of the equipment. Hand sanitizer and masks are available. 

Come join our Community Opera Chorus! There’s no experience necessary and no membership fee. We are building a chorus from the ground up! We will help you with group breathing and singing exercises, movement and score reading. It’s like choir, but eventually you’ll be in costume and acting as well as singing! If you love to sing and to be part of a group come join us!

We will be working on repertoire from “The Tales of Hoffmann”, “Rigoletto”, “Don Carlo”, “Tosca”, “MacBeth”, and “Carmen” and more.
