Join the Choir!

The Auditorium choir is open to all singers without audition. We welcome you to join us any time you are in Ocean Grove during the summer. For Sunday Services, we rehearse briefly about 9 pm Friday night after the Festival/Sacred Concert rehearsal and then on Sunday morning at 9 am. 

This Week

Sunday, August 20, 9 am -- rehearsal for 10:30 am service.  Anthem: "All People That on Earth Do Dwell" (Wilberg) Listen to it here











Rehearsals: It often is warm in the choir loft, so dress comfortably and sensibly!  
Sunday morning services: Neat, casual attire is fine, but please do not wear shorts.
Sunday evening services:  Casual ok, shorts ok if worn with a Hawaiian shirt
Concert Dress: Ladies: white dress or white top and black bottom. Men: white long or short sleeved shirts, dark tie, dark pants. 

Always - love thy neighbor! Please refrain from wearing perfume or other scented products for rehearsals, services, and events; allergies to these products would make it difficult for some to sing.

Special note: no knapsacks or large bags are permitted in the Auditorium, and no liquids except water are allowed in the choir loft.  


Sacred Concert - August 27, 7 pm 

We will be singing Camille Saint-Saens' Christmas Oratorio and Emile Dubois' Seven Last Words of Christ. 

Rehearsals begin Tuesday, July 11, 7:30 in the Great Auditorium and continue Tuesdays and Fridays until the concert.   If you attend early rehearsals, we can provide music for you; if you wish to purchase your own, the versions we are using are both from G. Schirmer. 

Please add rehearsal letters to your copies of the music.
