Sing with Us!
Singing in the time of COVID!
In 2020-21, Jubilate is holding virtual rehearsals over Zoom. How do you sing over Zoom, you may ask?
Because of the lag time over Zoom, we keep our microphones off. But you're not singing completely alone: often you will hear a full-choir recording, so that you're singing along with other voices in harmony.
We also practice in sectional rehearsals, when you might hear the section leader playing the piano and singing your part. It may sound scary, but it works!
We sometimes have guest vocal clinicians, mini-sessions on the International Phonetic Alphabet and other musical skills, and occasional presentations by members in a feature called "Singers' Corner."
There is built-in time for socializing and chatting in smaller groups -- we're a very social choir, and we even manage to hold virtual potlucks!
Sounds great! Can I join?
Yes! This year we've welcomed several new members who miss singing in their regular choir. You don't have to make a long-term commitment, though we'd love to have you stick with us when this is all over. And there are no auditions!
See the contact info at the top of this page.
In a normal season, pre-COVID:
We usually give three concerts a year: late November, late February/early March, and late May/early June. The dress rehearsals take place the evening before each concert.
There are typically two community concerts a year. In past years we have sung for retirement homes, community groups and a rehabilitation hospital.
