Not sure yet? Come sit in, meet some of our amazing members and give it a try.
1. Do I need musical training or experience to join SCSCC?
There are no auditions required. All you need is a love of music and singing.
2. Is there an age limit?
We welcome anyone 14 years of age or older to join our group.
3. Do I need to be a resident of St. Clair Shores to join?
Absolutely not. Many of our members reside in neighboring communities such as, Harper Woods, Roseville, Harrison Township, etc.
4. Are there fees required to join?
There are membership dues which cover the costs of music and operational support. Additionally, there are costs related to costumes. Our year consists of two concert seasons, one holiday and one spring. Membership dues are $45 per season or $80 per year. Please contact us to find out the current cost of costumes.
5. Will I need to memorize the music?
Most music is NOT memorized. However, small groups within the chorus (Women's Ensemble, Mixed Ensemble, and Show Choir) require memorization. Show Choir also requires learning some basic choreography.
6. What if I need help learning the music?
Everyone needs help sometimes! All parts are played separately for each section. If you need additional help you can ask a neighbor or our director after rehearsal. Some members bring a small recorder to help them learn the music. Music is also available in the member area of the website for at home practice.
7. What kind of music do you sing?
We sing many genres. We love variety! We have a large collection of music and new selections each year. Some of our past performances have included, Broadway selections, Music of Disney, Hollywood Movies and TV, Classical, and Motown to name a few.
8. I spend several weeks away during the year or I travel for work and will have to miss some rehearsals. Can I still join?
Yes! You can get the music before you leave so you can rehearse on your own. However, we do need you to be present at dress rehearsals.
9. I am unable to stand for great lengths of time. May I sit on a chair during performances?
Absolutely you may sit! We have several members that are unable to stand and we accommodate them with chairs during the performances.
