Join the Choir!

 
 
The Auditorium choir is open to all singers without audition. We welcome you to join us any time you are in Ocean Grove during the summer. For Sunday Services, we rehearse briefly about 9 pm Friday night after the Festival/Sacred Concert rehearsal and then on Sunday morning at 9 am. 

 

Choir Festival

Churches and Choirs who participated in the 2016 Choir Festival

If you are interested in singing or attending, here are the choirs that sent singers to the 2016 Choir Festival. We encourage you to contact nearby churches and gather enough singers or audience members to hire a bus!

Music

Singers who are not regular Auditorium Choir members should supply their own music; it may be purchased from Young's Music Store, (610) 437-5881. A full packet is $28 (volume discounts are available); if you already have access to some of the pieces from your own choir library, you may purchase just the pieces you need. Be sure to obtain the correct publisher and version of the music as noted in the Festival brochure. Note for Sopranos and Altos -- the Wilberg Silent Night is for tenors and basses only, so you may not want to order this piece. 
Note: Two of the pieces (In His Steps and Great is Thy Faithfulness) are not yet published and will not be included in orders currently placed. Young's estimates they will be available approximately mid-May and will be shipped at that time. 

Youtube Playlist is available if you wish to hear some of these pieces.

Rehearsals

There is one mandatory rehearsal from 2-5:15 pm on the day of the Festival. Singers should have learned the music before this rehearsal as we will have only a short time to work on each piece with the conductor. Rehearsals will be held in the Auditorium Friday nights beginning June 9 and Tuesdays beginning June 20 at 7:30. [Rehearsals on June 16 and 23 will be held at St. Paul's Church, 80 Embury Ave, Ocean Grove due to a scheduling conflict]. 

 

 

Regional Rehearsals

If your church or group is hosting regional rehearsals for the Choir Festival or the Sacred Concert and is willing to let others join, please let us know () when, where, and contact information, and we'll post it below and on the choir calendar.

Dress

Rehearsals: It often is warm in the choir loft, so dress comfortably and sensibly!  
Sunday services: Neat, casual attire is fine, but please do not wear shorts. 
Concert Dress: Ladies: white dress or white top and black bottom. Men: white long or short sleeved shirts, dark tie, dark pants. 
Always - love thy neighbor! Please refrain from wearing perfume or other scented products for rehearsals, services, and events; allergies to these products would make it difficult for some to sing.

Special note: no knapsacks are permitted in the Auditorium, and no liquids except water are allowed in the choir loft.
