"Music for all Ages", the mission of the chorus, focuses on bringing the beauty and inspiration of music and the arts to the community. This is accomplished by inviting adult singers to join us in performing excellent choral music in a variety of styles (i.e. Broadway, pop, spiritual, and classical) and presenting this music in choral concerts, often with guest performers. In addition, we donate funds to local schools and organizations for the support of music and the arts for young people.
Rehearsals are held every Monday evening September through April from 6:45 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church located at 7575 N. Paseo del Norte, Tucson. There are also some Saturday AM rehearsals as deemed necessary by the Artistic Director.
Membership dues are $75 per season, nonrefundable. Dues payment deadline is September 30 for the fall season and January 31 for the spring season. New member dues are payable in full after attending four rehearsals. Dues may be paid by check or cash to the chorus Treasurer. Questions regarding payments or due dates should be directed to the Treasurer.
Copies of music are distributed to members at rehearsals and are the property of members for use while preparing for concerts. All new members are given a black music folder. Concert folders are issued to each member to be used for concerts only and remain property of CCC. Concert folder replacement cost is $25.
The performance attire for men is black pants, jewel-toned shirt (purchased from the chorus), and black shoes.
The performance attire for women is black pants/slacks, jewel-toned shirt (purchased from the chorus), black stockings, black close-toed shoes (exceptions made as needed).
No perfumes, colognes, after shave, heavy scented hair spray or garlic - rehearsals and concerts.
Catalinas Community Chorus is a volunteer group. Anyone (of high school age and beyond) who enjoys singing a variety of musical styles is invited to join without audition. Singers are expected to take membership seriously, attending all rehearsals and performances. In the case of an absence, singers are asked to notify the Artistic Director, (520-465-5479). The Artistic Director will determine if a member with multiple absences may participate in a concert.
Singers are also expected to support the chorus, including distributing concert flyers, soliciting Playbill ads from local businesses, and suggesting possible community partnerships in order to fulfill the mission of the chorus. Singers are expected to sell or purchase four tickets for each concert each season.
The CCC is governed by a board of directors (plus the Artistic Director) whose members are elected to three year terms at the Annual Meeting of the chorus. The Board meets monthly. An Annual Meeting of members of the chorus is held once a year during a scheduled rehearsal. Special meetings of the membership may be called if deemed necessary. The CCC is a not-for-profit 501 (c) 3 organization.
