Join Us!!

Resolved to do something fun in 2018? How about joining the Lawrence Civic Choir! Spring rehearsals will begin on January 8, 2018 at First Baptist Church, 14th & Kasold, Lawrence. Registration is at 7:00pm and rehearsal is from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Registration will also be held on January 15 and January 29, 2018, at 7:00pm, with rehearsal following registration. (NO rehearsal or registration on Monday, January 22!) After that, you’ll need the director’s permission to join the choir. Registration dues are $40 for new and lapsed members (last participated Fall 2016 or earlier), $50 for all returning members, and $25 with a valid student ID. Also due on the night of registration is a $25 music deposit (see below for details). If you are paying by check, please have your check already written out ahead of time, as this will help the registration process go faster. This semester’s concert is expected to feature the Gospel Mass by Robert Ray. This is sure to be another beautiful and fun concert!

When you arrive at registration, a Board member will hand you a ‘Spring 2018 Registration Check Sheet’. Follow the instructions on this check sheet and take this sheet with you to each table as you make your way through the registration process (there are 3-tables total that you’ll visit:  Information, Treasury, and Music). Once you reach the last table, you will then turn in your Registration Check Sheet to the Music Librarian in order to check out your music.

Furthermore, to help speed up the registration process, I encourage you to pre-register your information online here! This will allow us to have your most current information before January 8. If you pre-register online, all you’ll need to do is tell your name to the Board member stationed at the first ‘Information’ registration table that pertains to you, whether you’re a new member or a returning member. If we’ve received your online registration, your name will then be marked off the list of pre-registrations and you can proceed to the Treasurer’s table. It’s faster and easier!

In addition to choir dues, each member is now required to pay a $25 music deposit at the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester in order to check out music from the choir. This deposit can be paid in a lump sum with other dues/costs at the Treasurer’s table (ie. registration dues, CD purchases, etc). How this music deposit is structured is when each member returns their music the night of the concert in April (AFTER the concert is over), each member will then be given a $25 Grocery Gift Card deposit refund after each major performance.

** Please note – if you do not return your music the night of the concert in April, you will not get your deposit back! **

If you still need to turn in music from a previous semester, please bring them with you to registration to turn in. If you are unable to sing with us this semester and you still have music that needs to be returned to the choir, please let me know and we can work with you to get the music returned.
