The Auditorium Choir
No more Tuesday & Friday rehearsals!
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.
Rehearsals begin early June each summer. Rehearsals are held in the Auditorium, at 7:30 PM on Fridays and Tuesdays.
Sept. 1 - Camp Meeting picnic in the Pavilion, 5 pm, then choir leads a march to the Tabernacle for a Hymn Sing followed by the Camp Meeting annual reports. Come, sing, and express your support for our fabulous music programs!
Rehearsals: It often is warm in the choir loft, so dress comfortably and sensibly!
Sunday morning services: Neat, casual attire is fine, but please do not wear shorts.
Sunday evening services: Casual ok, shorts ok if worn with a Hawaiian shirt
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 or large bags are permitted in the Great Auditorium, and no liquids except water are allowed in the choir loft.
Choir Festival 2020 -- Sunday July 12 (tentative)
Make plans now to join us for the 66th annual Choir Festival! Consider running a regional rehearsal site for singers in your area, and collaborate with other nearby choirs to hire a bus so you can relax and enjoy the entire day in Ocean Grove without worrying about parking. A map of choirs participating in the 2019 Festival is below; regional rehearsal sites are in purple.
Registration materials will be mailed out late March, 2020 and will be posted here as soon as available.
