HOW DO I JOIN? New members are welcome to join during the first two weeks of each season. When you arrive, you will be greeted by some BCS board members. You will fill out a membership form, be given music, and will then join a section. While we are a non-audition chorus, new members will have voice testing to determine their placement in the soprano, alto, tenor, or bass section.
IS THERE A COST? Yes. There are membership fees. $50 per each season, or $75 for the year. You must pay the $75 by the winter deadline to receive the full year discount. Members also are responsible for the cost of their music. This has ranged over the years from $10-$40.
WHERE AND WHEN ARE REHEARSALS? We rehearse every Tuesday night, from 7:30-9:30 during the school year at Braintree High School. We rehearse in the Chorus room (to the right once in the main building.)
IS THERE A CONCERT DRESS CODE? Yes. Ladies have a dress that will need to be purchased and gentlemen will need a tux. Dresses can be seen and purchased here (search Mariposa dress): www.stageaccents.com/mariposa.html
IS THERE AN ATTENDANCE POLICY? Yes. Members are expected to attend rehearsals regularly. Persistent tardiness may result in may result in exclusion. FOUR absences in a season, or absence from dress rehearsal, are reasons for exclusion from the final concert performance.
