SING WITH WAUKESHA CHORAL UNION
The Waukesha Choral Union derives its strength and quality from its members’ passion for singing and is always seeking new voices interested in:
• Enriching your singing ability
• Learning and performing a variety of musical genres
• Socializing with others with similar interests and vocal skills
• Belonging to a historic, renowned non-profit Waukesha community arts organization
Auditions are by appointment and will last approximately ten minutes. You may prepare a piece of music in advance, or choose something to sing that evening. Simple site reading and parts singing to a simple tune is involved. An accompanist will be available. You will also be asked to sing scales. The audition is a straightforward process.
Auditions are held at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, located at 2016 Center Road, Waukesha, WI 53189. MAP. This is the location of weekly rehearsals for Waukesha Choral Union. To schedule an audition, or for more information, please mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 262-238-3454.
Singers participate in the Choral Union by lending their voices AND sharing in the operational costs of this non-profit organization. Member dues are a significant part of our annual revenue, and every attempt is made to keep them reasonable. Dues for the 2017- 2018 Season for returning members are $75.00 for each semester. (New Members pay $50.00 their first semester, $75.00 subsequently.) Members submit payment to their Section Leaders within eight weeks of the first rehearsal of each semester. Singers are expected to “match” their dues payment each semester by selling tickets and ads, participating in, and contributing to fundraising events, a personal donation, purchasing WCU “products”, donating their time and energies to “behind the scenes” activities, and recruiting new members. (WCU has created a “tracking” mechanism to help singers gauge their dues “match”. If you exceed your match for the Fall semester, the overage is applied to the Spring semester obligation). The value of taking part in WCU is enhanced by being truly involved!
Should paying dues present a financial hardship, singers may speak with a member of the WCU Board of Directors to explore their options.
Our next audition will be held on January 16, 2018.
Auditions are by appointment beginning @ 7:00pm.
Contact our Membership Chair at 262-238-3454 or email at email@example.com to arrange your audition.
