Enjoy singing? Join the City-County Chorus
The City-County Chorus welcomes all singers to join the group for its 2016 season. Rehearsals begin Tuesday, Sept. 13. Any City, County or State employee who enjoys singing may join the chorus; there are no auditions or prerequisites to participate.
The chorus rehearses noon-1 p.m. Tuesdays in the Hennepin County Government Center’s A-level auditorium (Room A0304). To join, attend a rehearsal. Dues cost $10 per year and are used to buy music, office supplies, robes and refreshments for the annual meeting in January.
The chorus’ repertoire includes holiday, seasonal and patriotic songs with piano accompaniment. The group performs several concerts between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve in various downtown locations, such as the Hennepin County Government Center, Minneapolis City Hall, Hennepin County Medical Center and US Bank Building. These performances usually take place at noon. The chorus also performs at Mall of America.
Participation in the chorus is a City-approved activity, which means employees are allowed to use limited work hours to participate in rehearsals and performances; employees in the chorus may take a full hour for lunch to participate in rehearsals and performances instead of 30 minutes.
