Loveland Choral Society was established in 1977, and has grown to become an accomplished eclectic choral and performance ensemble capable of performing a wide range of choral genres. LCS is a volunteer community chorus whose members come from many diverse backgrounds. The group is comprised of both trained and non-trained singers, all who enjoy the thrill of making music. Membership is open to interested singers, high school age and above, who possess basic vocal skills necessary to learn and perform multi-part choral music.
Rehearsals for our 2016 Holiday Concert will begin on Thursday, September 22nd. Registration begins at 6:00 p.m. and we'll start previewing the music at 7:00 p.m. All rehearsals are in the Fellowship Hall at Mountain View Presbyterian Church, 2500 N. Garfield in Loveland.
Attendance: LCS members are dedicated singers and are expected to attend all regularly scheduled (Thursday) rehearsals. Attendance at extra practices is strongly encouraged but not mandatory. All singers must inform their section leaders of any absence. Excessive absenteeism can result in non-participation in the concerts. The final decision will be made by the section leader and the artistic director. Attendance at a sectional rehearsal may make up for missing a regular rehearsal.
Rehearsal Protocol:Rehearsals begin promptly at 7:00 PM and end at 9:30 PM.
Cell Phones and Pagers are to be turned on silent and not to be used during rehearsals. Talking (kibitzing) with your neighbors is strongly discouraged. Eating and chewing gum are prohibited during rehearsals. Water bottles (with secure tops) are permitted. Members should refrain from wearing perfume or cologne during rehearsals and performances (due to allergies). Members are to show kindness, respect, and courtesy to fellow members, recognizing each to be a unique individual with differing talents and abilities.
Dues: Members pay dues as established by the board for each show in which they participate. Dues must be paid by the membership cut-off date for the concert. These dues do not cover the cost of the music. Rather, they are collected to help defray LCS expenses for the performance royalties, accompaniment, administration, music storage, etc. Dues are non-refundable.
