Membership Information - Join Us!

Loveland Choral Society was established in 1978, 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. New members are invited to join at the start of each concert cycle: in August for the fall concert, in October for the Christmas concert, and in January for the spring production. Formal auditions are held for the spring production only.

Monday, October 4, after a long hiatus, LCS will begin rehearsals for our annual Christmas concerts.  The theme for this year’s concert is We Need a LOT of Christmas.  Rehearsals are held each Monday at New Freedom Outreach Center, 250 Mountain Avenue, in Berthoud from 7:00 until 9:15.  Registration for all returning and prospective LCS members begins at 6:00 with a preview of the music starting promptly at 7:00. Membership deadline is October 18th. Dues are $40.00 per person.

Member Responsibilities

​Attendance: LCS members are dedicated singers and are expected to attend all regularly scheduled (Monday) 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 9:15 PM.

​Cell Phones are to be turned to 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 (currently $40 per concert). Dues must be paid by the membership cut-off date for the concert, generally the third rehearsal. 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 after the membership cut-off date.
