What is the time commitment?

GMCH and BCWC perform a December Holiday concert as the combined chorus, Bayou City Choral. GMCH generally performs one other regular concert June. GMCH rehearsals for these concerts generally occur each Monday evening from 7 — 10 p.m., beginning about 8 —10 weeks prior to the concert. BCWC generally performs one other concert in April. BCWC rehearsals for these concerts generally occur each Tuesday evening from 6:30 — 9:30 p.m. beginning about 10 —12 weeks prior to the concert. BCWC will sometimes join GMCH in one of their spring/summer concerts and perform as part of the combined chorus.

Members are expected to perform in all concerts.

For both choruses: Additional weekend rehearsals may be required as a concert date nears, and combined rehearsals are sometimes required. Beyond these minimum requirements, you may choose your own level of involvement. Please keep in mind, however, that we do perform all of our music from memory. As a community chorus, BCPA offers an abundance of social enrichment, outreach and volunteer opportunities for its members throughout the year. So the question becomes, “how much time would you like to give?”
