How the NWAHS Choir Works:

  • NO Audition. Only an appointment with the director to go over expectations and hear current vocal range/skills. Families may enroll as soon as registration opens. Check the Calendar for group meeting. 1:1 appointments also accepted.

  • Participation / Attendance:

    • Choirs are TEAMS. When teammates are absent it negatively impacts rehearsals and performances. 80% attendance is the minimum requirement to qualify for re-enrollment. ​

    • Our Choir is VOLUNTEER RUN! Please respect the time, resources and energy of the choir by arriving on-time and prepared for rehearsals.

    • Only the semester end concert and it's tech rehearsal are "required performances."  All other "pop-up" opportunities are optional and generally only require 1/3 of the group to participate for the pop-up event to be successful. Easy!  Simply RSVP for the "extras" your family can do and decline the ones you cannot.

    • Communication is EVERYTHING. Please notify the director of any conflicts in the calendar as they arise. Life happens.

  • Open to ages 7+ (5-6 year olds accepted case by case). Music is selected for beginning voices and tailored to the skills of the choir each semester. We spotlight the many ages and skills within the choir. 

  • Fees: $175 per semester plus 12.50 uniform tee shirt and/or $20 hoodie.

    • Multi-student discounts cannot be offered at this time. Please contact the director for hardship requests.

    • $75 per student semester registration fee.​ NON REFUNDABLE, due at time of enrollment.

    • $100 per student tuition fee. Due the first month of rehearsals (August 2023) Nonrefundable after the first month.

    • Standard Uniform :

      • Uniform Tee Shirt $12.50 

      • Black "bottoms" ... "waist to toe" in black.

      • Black Shoes and socks/stockings.

      • Hair neatly out of the face.

      • Conservative makeup is permitted.

    • OPTIONAL: additional travel / performances. Fuel and meal costs for traveling to performance venues.

  • Time Commitment:

    • We operate in 15-week semesters, one semester at a time.

      • Please note that our semester end concert may fall AFTER week 15 in some instances.​

      • Re-registration is required each semester.

  • REQUIRED: ONE, one-hour rehearsal each week.  Students must maintain 80% attendance or higher to qualify for re-enrollment. 

    • Primary Rehearsal Day: Thursday, 2pm - 2:45 for CHORAL rehearsal and 2:45pm - 3:00 pm for choreography (optional) at Elmdale Baptist Church in Springdale. 

      • This choir will run alongside Network Day class schedules for convenience only.

  • REQUIRED: Home practice and participation on BAND APP. Music is to be memorized for all shows. We communicate almost entirely on BAND APP, join us here. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR BAND APP.

  • PERFORMANCES:

    • Our end of semester tech rehearsal and concert/show is mandatory. While we strive for a "no stress/easy" choral experience, members who are habitually absent will loose/ not be offered solos and small ensemble opportunities. ​

    • ALL other "pop up" shows or additional opportunities are optional please RSVP for each event on Band App.

      • We intend to visit and serve as many nursing homes, veterans homes, assisting living and other such facilities as often as we have enough singers available to go. Use the Band App calendar to RSVP for these events.
