Our members’ musical ability ranges from no previous choral experience to substantial vocal training. Some of us are learning to read music; others are practiced sight-readers.** We range in age from teenagers (18+) through senior citizens. We are business people, students, educators, engineers, homemakers, and retirees. Through singing, we give of ourselves to each other as well as to our community, and enrich our own lives in doing so.
Our members pay dues of $85 ($75 for seniors 65+) each singing season (Winter & Spring). These dues, as well as yearly fundraising and concert ticket sales, cover our expenses for the year including Director and Accompanist compensation, space rentals for rehearsals and concerts, sheet music purchase and other creative or administrative expenses incurred. In addition to dues, for some concerts there might be other minimal fees, such as for voice part CDs (optional), purchase of a special piece of music, or a concert dress accessory.
Those who cannot afford to pay the membership dues but would like to sing are encouraged to make arrangements with ACC's President to pay what they honorably can. No one will be denied the opportunity to sing because of an inability to pay the dues.
