Q: “Are you a religious choir?”
A: The Chorus is not affiliated with any religious organization, and students from all backgrounds are welcome to sing with us. Many of our supporters are from various faith backgrounds, and several concert and rehearsal spaces are provided by faith organizations. If this is a concern of yours, please ask to speak to our Executive Director or a Board member.

A: We require everyone to wear masks indoors unless eating/drinking/singing, we’ll take temperatures upon arrival using a non-touch thermometer, we expect students and volunteers to wash hands frequently, we’ll provide hand sanitizer at the sign-in table, will diligently clean and sanitize the location, a volunteer will sign in students as they arrive and depart to avoid sharing pens, one volunteer will serve snacks; they will wear a mask and gloves, if a student comes down with covid-19, everyone is notified, and rehearsals will be suspended for 2 weeks, students will be kept socially distant during singing and games, and concerts will be streamed online, and a limited number of tickets will be offered to allow for social distancing for in-person concert-goers.
We are staying up-to-date, and will update our protocol as information and circumstances change surrounding covid-19.
