Interested in Joining the Chorus?
The chorus meets from September to mid-December, takes a short break, and then resumes in February through June. Our 2 main concerts are in December and June, but we also do a variety of smaller performances during each season.
Rehearsals are Monday evenings, 7:00-9:30 PM. New members are welcome at the start of a new season - the first Monday after Labor Day in September or the first Monday in February. We rehearse at Saint Mark's Church, on the corner of Galena & Edgelawn in Aurora. Although church space is used for rehearsals, the Chorus is not affiliated with any church denomination.
Our members have varied musical backgrounds. Some have extensive experience, some have sung only in their church choir, while others haven't sung since their school days. There are no audition requirements to join the Fox Valley Festival Chorus, however, being a member of FVFC means making a commitment to maintaining its quality and sustainability. Expectations of chorus members are:
Learning the music (including practicing at home with vocal recordings)
Attending rehearsals regularly
Supporting fund raising activities that sustain the chorus
Participating in all concerts
Out of concern for our Fox Valley Festival Chorus family and friends, FVFC is sad to announce the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 season. We will return in 2021 to begin rehearsals for our Spring Concert. Watch this website and the FVFC Facebook page for updated information. Stay well.
