CHORALE FAQ

1. What safety protocols will be in place for rehearsals and performances?

Policies are evolving as the world’s health situation is evolving. Please note that policies can change at anytime. At this time, masks are not required and are optional for both rehearsals and performances. Members of the Chorale may or may not be vaccinated. We support each singer’s right to manage and determine their own safety. Seating will be set up with distance between singers, but, what that distance will be I cannot say. If you have questions or concerns, you may express those concerns in the Chorale Interest Form.

2. How many placements will there be for the 2021-2022 Season?

There will be a total of 24 to 32 singers selected at the start of this season. Due to the current situation of COVID and following health guidelines, the MOSC is committed to placing safety as a priority feeling grateful for the opportunity to gradually get back to in-person rehearsals and performances. I know this is disappointing news regarding taking less numbers. I do understand and I completely sympathize. We are anticipating that our state and community health situation will continue to improve so we may increase numbers to reflect more “normal” programming.

3. Will you be holding more auditions?

There are times when some attrition occurs. Emails regarding future auditions will be sent to those who previously applied/auditioned as well as posted on the MOSC website. 

4. How many concerts will the chorale perform this season?

The Chorale will perform three main concerts this season including:

  • "Sounds Of The Season" - December 4, 2021
  • Chorale Spring Concert - April 2, 2022
  • "May The Planets Be With You" - May 14, 2022

The first two concerts will involve the full Chorale. The third concert in May will involve only the treble voices for Holst’s The Planets.
