We are seeking select singers to join us.
To schedule an audition, or for more information, please contact ECS Director Randy Burghart – 616-322-7028 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our membership grows almost entirely through recommendations from our choir members (who are expected to be active in their local churches), so we trust that our singers are faithful followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and that they also have the musical capabilities necessary to sing the repertoire. If you are a local singer of like mind who believes in our mission and wishes to join us, feel free to contact us by e-mail to see if there are openings in the choir.
There are no dues—we simply expect singers to rehearse and prepare diligently for our concerts. Concerts could incorporate a mixture of accompanied and unaccompanied (a cappella) works. For a better understanding of the types of works we present, please see the list of works we have performed over the past several years on the Repertoire page.
Typically, rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings 7-9:30 p.m. from just after Labor Day until the concert on the Sunday afternoon before Thanksgiving Day in November. Additional rehearsals are held in the performance venue during the week prior to the Sunday concert. For a complete rehearsal schedule, please visit the Rehearsals page.
Additional performance opportunities may arise for the Evangelical Choral Society in the months that follow the traditional annual fall concert, where we would present, with quick review, some of our fall music in other venues to new audiences. We may also prepare (with few rehearsals) other works that are accessible to experienced singers.
