The New Haven Oratorio Choir performs a varied selection of sacred and secular classical music, including contemporary works. The choir performs two main concerts per season, in December and May.
We ask for $100 membership dues per semester which go directly to support our basic expenses like rehearsal accompianist, rehearsal space, music and artistic director. Discounts are available for students and those with other hardships such as unemployment. We also ask that members participate and volunteer in a couple of fundraising events per year, typically one per semester.
Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, 8-10 PM at the Church of the Redeemer in New Haven, on the corner of Whitney Avenue and Cold Spring Street. Rehearsals occur
during the academic year (September-May), with a recess in the summer months (June-August), and a brief recess between semesters (mid-December-early January). There are extra rehearsals during
the week before the concert and occasionally sectionals and master classes are scheduled on a Sunday afternoon. Attendance is expected at all rehearsals unless prior arrangements have been made with
the Artistic Director and Membership Coordinator.
