Last year's Chorus was exceptionally fine, and it is hoped that many of you will be with the group again this year. If you are accepted as a member of the chorus, it will be taken for granted that you will attend ALL rehearsals and ALL performances. I hope that this year we can keep up the fine work of past years. Please fill out and return your applications promptly.
Incomplete applications will not be accepted. This includes the endorsements from your music director, advisor, etc.
