We invite you to join our fine chorale, directed by Ms. Lara Reem and accompanied by Mrs. Carol Spayer.

Membership We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to join our group, from college students to "experienced" retirees.

Rehearsals: Rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00pm, starting Tuesday, August 20th, at Illinois Central College in East Peoria, in room 121 A. “Open Rehearsals” for new members are scheduled for Tuesday, August 20th and August 27th, giving you an opportunity to come see what we are about. However, starting with the third rehearsal, you will be expected to pay the necessary dues to join the Chorale.

Parking: You may park in the visitors’ lot or in the general parking lots in the spaces bordered in yellow. Closer parking is available by obtaining a permit (details discussed during first rehearsals). You may park in the closer lot for the first rehearsal as the permits can be obtained upon arrival.

Tickets and Sponsorships: Concert Tickets are $12.00 for adults, with discounted tickets at $10.00 for students and seniors. Sponsorships by individuals and businesses in any any dollar amount accepted, but starting at $25.00 we will include your name or business information in our concert program as a sponsor. This can be donated through a choir member or by sending in the attached sponsorship page. We would greatly appreciate your financial support of our fine arts program, even if you cannot participate in the chorale this semester.

Costs: Costs are $50 per person, per semester, $45 for registration at ICC and $5 going to the Chorale.
These costs can be taken care of at the first two rehearsals.

We hope to see you on January 21st! If you have any additional questions, feel free to send us an email using the Contact link at the top of this page.
