Bringing Musical Excellence to the South Shore and the World since 1981
Talented Singers Are Welcome!
We are always interested in new singers - especially men! Previous choral experience is a plus but not required. Our Fall season begins the first Monday after Labor Day (Sept. 12, 2016) and our Winter/Spring season begins the first Monday after New Year’s Day (Jan. 2, 2017) for both our March and May concerts. No appointment is necessary. You may use the Contact page on this site to let us know that you are interested.
The audition piece is rehearsed during regular rehearsal time for each vocal section during the first 3 weeks. The audition is also given to establish your vocal range and quality. We do not require that all members be able to sight-read music,
QCS rehearses on Monday nights 7:30-9:30 PM at the East Congregational Church in East Milton.
The street address for GPS is:
610 Adams Street, Milton, MA
Fondly referred to as East Cong, we sing in the spacious basement. Parking is available behind the church and in the adjacent parking lot.
but we do require that each member of the Quincy Choral Society demonstrates that he or she can learn their music at home as well as on Monday nights in order to support their section and the chorus as a whole.
We ask that if you audition and are accepted as a member, you commit yourself to be at each Monday evening rehearsal not only for your own benefit, but also to benefit the members of your vocal section and the chorus as a whole. The Music Director gives in-depth notes each week and excessive absences can be reason for the Music Director to ask that you not sing in the next concert.
Dues ($30.00 per year: single person; $50.00 per year: couple) and cost of music are not due until you have passed your audition which is held before rehearsal on the 4th, 5th and 6th weeks of each season.
Auditions are given to any new member, or to a member who is returning after being away for more than a full year. Some of our members only sing for our December, or March, or May concerts. Some have left and then returned as their work schedules have changed.
“We take our music seriously while having a lot of serious fun!”
