The Auditorium Choir
Live Nativity, Tree Lighting, and Carol Singing
Saturday, December 8 at 5 pm
The choir will sit together in the south east corner of the Auditorium and sing familiar carols along with the youth in the Nativity. After, sing more carols as part of the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Auditorium Park. A small brass band usually accompanies us. No rehearsal or music needed -- we usually just do one verse of each carol.
Be sure to dress very warmly -- the Auditorium is extremely cold in December, even if there has been a brief warm-up outside. Bring a blanket and be sure to wear warm boots, gloves, and hats.
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.
We will resume rehearsals June 2019. Rehearsals are held in the Auditorium, at 7:30 PM on Fridays starting June 7th and Tuesdays starting June 18.
Choir Festival is July 14, 2019 and Sacred Concert is August 25, 2019.
Choir Festival registration materials will be posted here in March.
Rehearsals: It often is warm in the choir loft, so dress comfortably and sensibly!
