Got Questions?


Here are a number of frequently-asked questions:

 

How much personal time will it take?

It’s all up to you.

     The more you put into it, the more you get out of it.  In addition to weekly rehearsals throughout the year, there is an annual show and our yearly Sweet Adelines Region 15 competition in March or April.  We also have an annual weekend retreat to come together as friends and colleagues and to focus on different aspects of our performance. We perform in and around Long Island on a regular basis, visiting libraries, local festivals, business events, charitable events, holiday events, and arts festivals.  We have sung the Star Spangled Banner at Madison Square Garden and we have performed on stage at Radio City Music Hall as the holiday celebration preshow!  Whatever we do, we have great fun doing it!  In terms of time requirements:  weekly rehearsals are extremely important, and we encourage participation in performances, but you decide how much time you have to give to YOURSELF in order to be involved in our amazing organization!

 

 

What is the audition procedure?

It’s easy.

     You begin by visiting Island Hills Chorus and sitting in on our rehearsal.  Our Director or section leader will meet with you and determine your vocal range.  After that, you will be given a CD of one song along with the sheet music, and we will help you learn the music for audition.  After a number of weeks, when you feel comfortable, you'll sing for the Music Team in a quartet with 3 members of our chorus. It's a simple process, and you may audition more than once!  Give it a try!!!

 

Do I have to be a great singer?

No, and reading music is not a “must.”

     If you love to sing in the shower, in the car, or just rock out in your living room....that's all we need to know. Being a member of Island Hills Chorus will help you become a better singer over time.
