Who We Are
We are an inter-generational group of women who enjoy spending time together, making music, and sharing it with the community.
2023-24 Season: The Oak City Voices season starts in August and finishes in May. We host two public Meet and Greet gatherings before rehearsals begin in Mid Aug and early January.
Dues for the season will be determined for each concert, and currently are $40 per concert (Nov & May). We are able to consider subsidizing dues for members who cannot pay on a case by case basis. Please feel free to ask to speak with any of our Board members or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Requirements for membership:

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.
*Singers are required to be vaccinated against COVID 19 to be able to participate, and wearng a singing mask is as needed based on singer's individual comort.
