|Visit a Rehearsal|
Guests are always welcome at City Voices rehearsals. We rehearse every Thursday night at 7:15 at:
Church of the Good Shepherd
There are a few times our rehearsal schedule changes; contact Marcia at email@example.com or phone at 636-274-0723 or 314-413-4585 to be sure we will be there!
Who are we?
When you come in to a rehearsal, you will see that we are just like YOU! City Voices is comprised of professionals, homemakers, doctors, teachers, nurses, accountants, students, retirees, and more. Our age represents members in each decade starting with teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and on! We come from all over the St. Louis area and parts of Illinois. Each of us brings a variety of musical education and experience – some of us can’t even read music! We are united by our love of music, singing and performing; when we are together, the differences disappear and we are all the same.
What’s a rehearsal like?
When you visit, you will be invited to join us on the risers to see how it feels to sing with us. We start with invigorating warm ups lead by one of our assistant directors. Our master director, Jerilee Inghram, leads us through our repertoire songs by teaching and refining our vocal skills. Sometimes there is a bit of easy choreography dancing to keep us – and the music - energized!
You may choose to sit down and enjoy watching the chorus. We love to sing and perform, and each rehearsal reflects our joy and dedication to great singing. You will see and experience the excitement and enthusiasm fueled by the adrenaline of singing and moving on the risers.
Why do we each continue coming back?
Our Thursday night is a musical escape and positive experience to balance the commitments of our daily lives. Got stress? Studies have found overwhelming evidence that singing is good for your health! Singing releases endorphins into your system so you feel energized and uplifted. Any one of our members will tell you, “It is the 'fountain of youth'.” Sing for the HEALTH of it!
Our Thursday night is a time to enjoy camaraderie and treasured friendships. It is a place to socialize while sharing the common bond of music.
Come and see how singing four part harmony in the Barbershop style has evolved. Men in pin stripe suits and straw hats? Ladies in long skirts and knitting needles? Those images are LONG a thing of the past - this is NOT your momma’s barbershop!
What can happen after a few visits?
After a few weeks, you can choose to audition for membership in City Voices Chorus. Auditions are held weekly. To support your goal of membership, we provide you with the tools, assistance, and support you need to succeed in the audition experience.
