Who We Are
We are an inter-generational group of women who enjoy spending time together, making music, and sharing it with the community.
2019 -2020 Season: The Oak City Voices season starts in August and finishes in May.
Dues for the 2019-2020 year are $100, which cover rehearsal and administrative costs. In addition, you will pay for your own music, the price of which will be determined at the beginning of each season. Financial assistance may be available on a very limited and case by case basis (please explain your situation in your application). Dues are payable by cash, by personal check payable to Oak City Voices, or via PayPal. You probably already own the clothing described in our dress code. Dues (or your first installment) must be paid at the first rehearsal of the season.
Requirements for membership:
1) A basic knowledge of reading music (pitches and rhythms), musical terms, and musical concepts. If you are rusty and/or need assistance, we are available to help.
2) A Willingness to volunteer and serve on various committees as needed
3) A Willingness to practice between rehearsals as needed to learn your part
4) Access to email and the Internet. (We e-mail files and updates).
5) Age 18 years or older.
