Spring 2022: Let's Get Caffeinated!
Redmond Chorale will being the Spring 2022 season virtually on Zoom.
Beginning on Monday, January 24th, we will return to our in-person rehearsal at the Church of the Holy Cross at 11526 162nd Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052. All members who join us in person will need to show proof of COVID vaccination at the first in-person rehearsal. Redmond Chorale will only verify vaccinations, and will not keep a copy of vaccination records.
Members who wish to join from home will be able to attend our Zoom meetings. When we return to in-person rehearsals, we will simultaneously livestream them on Facebook through our Redmond Chorale Facebook group. Before receiving music to take home, please pay the $85 donation for the season.
All members should stay home if they are symptomatic or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Please notify the board of any possible exposure.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I join? (auditions)
Who should join?
Anyone wanting an opportunity to sing and perform, regardless of level of experience, should join the Redmond Chorale. Many people join as a way to get involved in the Greater Redmond community because of the Chorale's mission to partner with other Eastside organizations.
Do I need to have experience singing in order to join?
How many performances do you give?
The Redmond Chorale performs three concerts a year: a holiday concert in early December, a spring concert in mid-April, and a summer "pops" concert in late June. Members can sing for one, two, or three concerts as your schedule allows. Usually people start and then get hooked and decide to stay for all three! See our home page for the season overview.
When can I join?
Holiday concert season - rehearsals start Labor Day Monday in September
Spring concert season - rehearsals start the second Monday of January
Pops concert season - rehearsals start around the fourth Monday in April

What are rehearsals like?
We open the rehearsal with group warmups. Sometimes we hold sectionals (small group rehearsals divided up by voice type). There is always a pianist at rehearsals and as-needed for performances, and sometimes the repertoire calls for other instruments. Our Director Laurie is hilarious. It's fun!
