Chorale

The DCC Welcomes New Members!

Members range from age 15 to 80 and all share an enjoyment for music and fellowship

Our Choir:   The Deer Creek Chorale is an 80+ member inter-generational choir ages 15 and up.  Singers come from the greater Baltimore region: Baltimore and Harford Counties, Baltimore City, and Southern PA.

Our Music:  We sing together to celebrate the beauty of traditional and contemporary choral music both sacred and secular.  Sections are two-part Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass.

Our Singers:  Singers come from all backgrounds – some have music experience and some do not.  We do not hold auditions.  We learn and study together.

What Does It Cost to Join ?  Fall Membership for NEW Members is $150 for students and adults. Additionally, singers pay the cost of their music. For the 2018-2019 Fall Season, the music fee for NEW Members will be $47.  The music fee includes the use of professional Learning Files – audio files of all music by individual voice parts.  For our RETURNING Members, the membership fee will be $150 and new music will be $32.  In addition, if our RETURNING Members do not already have the following music, they will have to purchase these pieces for an additional fee, which is as follows:  Lux Aurumque for $2, Lux Aeterna for $1.50, and Mass of the Children for $10.

Student scholarship applications are accepted prior to September 1, 2018 for the 2018-19 season. Adult financial assistance is available on a needs-only, case by case basis by contacting the DCC Treasurer, Suzanne Zantop,  in writing at treasurer@deercreekchorale.org. All scholarship and financial assistance information is kept confidential.
