The Artistic Programs of the Chorus 

The Chorus of Westerly serves its community by offering unique musical education and performance experience. The current offerings of the Chorus of Westerly include an ever-expanding array of programs for both young people and adults of all ages. The programs of the Chorus are thus intergenerational. The Programs include:

THE SYMPHONIC SINGING MEMBERSHIP

Children (as young as 8) and adults of any age may sing as full members of the Chorus of Westerly. Each singer will get a chance to rehearse, prepare, and eventually perform in a serious, high quality, and artistically demanding environment should they become members of the Chorus itself. A singing member will get a chance to perform with the Chorus locally, regionally, and internationally the major Choral works of the last 500 years with full symphonic orchestras and professional soloists. All singing members will also have access to music education programs to strengthen their musical fundamentals and skills and voice work.

The singers are mostly all of equal rank in the organization, but for rehearsal and preparation purposes are grouped into several levels:

Level 1 – Training Chorister (Youth)
Level 2 – Junior Chorister (Youth)
Level 3A – Full Chorister (Youth)
Level 3B – Adults 

The full chorister young singers and adults are considered the same level in terms of their musicianship, rehearsal demands, music education program, and performance expectations. 


Details of the Children's Program (including Camp) and Levels 1, 2, and 3A are available here.


Details on the rehearsal schedule for Levels 1, 2, 3A, and 3B are available here.


Details on auditioning for the Chorus (children and adults) are available here.
