The Chorus of Westerly's Symphonic Chorus

We bring exceptional music and world-class performances to the region while fostering a supportive musical community in the heart of Westerly, RI.

Program Information & Expectations

The Chorus of Westerly strives to perform at highest levels of artistic excellence and therefore does require a strong level of commitment from its singers - both children and adults. 

Singers are required to commit to the entire performance season. That includes attendance at regular weekly rehearsals (meaning great attendance at regular rehearsals with few if any absences), mandatory attendance at performance week and weekend rehearsals, singing ALL the performances on the Chorus of Westerly's regular season (Fall concert, Christmas Pops, Spring concerts, Summer Pops), participating in various volunteer capacities, and paying membership dues.

Adult Rehearsals:
Tuesdays 7:30-9:45 pm

Beginning the week of 9/6

*Children's Rehearsals:
Every Child singer in the Chorus gets at least two hours of rehearsal per week. Singers practice repertoire and develop musicianship skills that prepare them to be independent and confident musicians. Depending on age and musical experience, children are placed into one one of four ensembles in the Children's Program (Junior Choristers, Trebles, Full Choristers).
