FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS... About Joining Us
Q: Can anyone join?
A: Absolutely! We are a non-audition adult (ages 18+) community choir. All you need to do is be able to match pitch (sing the same note as your neighbour) and commit to rehearsals. We have a wide variety of members including accomplished musicians and singers, members who do not read music and those whose only experience prior to joining was singing in the shower. The Big Rock Singers will provide lots of encouragement and support along with hints and tips from our Director about good singing habits. After just a few rehearsals, your confidence will soar with how easy it is!
Q: When and where do you rehearse?
A: We rehearse every Wednesday evening at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Okotoks. In the Fall season (September to first week of December), we rehearse from 7:00-9:30pm. In the Spring season (January to first week of May) we have two groups, depending on the amount of music and movement you want to enjoy! Our “Concert Choir” rehearses from 7:00-8:30pm and our “Show Choir” from 7:00-10:00pm. In the Spring we also rehearse 2-3 times on Saturdays when we are nearing our show date. Folks quite often get together weekly with other members of their singing section on Monday evenings to practice – participation in this is optional, but really fun and a great way to make new friends!
