2019 - 2020 Registration

Our chorus has grown to over 100 singers! This incredible growth has created challenges for us at our venues. The Choral Society will continue to be a non-auditioned community chorus however, we need to balance our soprano and alto numbers with the bass and tenor numbers. 

So how will this work?


Returning sopranos and altos need to register between July 15 - August 12 for Fall semester.  At this moment if there are new soprano or alto singers wanting to sing, they will be placed on a wait list. Once I can determine how many singers have registered, I will open up places for new singers on August 13.  New tenors and basses are welcome to register now.


ESCS has an attendance policy that allows two absences per semester. If you know that you will miss more than two rehearsals during a semester because of travel or previous engagements, please plan to NOT sing. Rehearsal attendance begins August 19.
