The Gaithersburg Chorus is a non-audition ensemble, open to those 16 and older, performing a variety of music from classical, to pop, to Broadway, and everything in between. The Chorus is a class, with sessions in the fall and spring. Director Daniel Hopkins provides weekly instruction on music theory, musicality and the mechanics of singing, including vocalization, voice control, proper breathing technique and voice projection. Previous experience not required.
Students looking for volunteer opportunities can earn SSL hours for participating in the Chorus. They must attend each weekly rehearsal.
Registration for Fall Chorus is now open. Sessions start with an Open House on Tuesday, September 3, 7:30 p.m., followed by formal weekly rehearsals from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. The Open House and rehearsals take place at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park. There is a 15% discount each for individuals in the same household who register together. Need-based financial assistance is available through the Linda May Scholarship Fund.
