Because NWC performs with several different orchestras, our concert season is variable, to say the least. Generally, the season runs from fall through spring (as with most other area groups); often, there are one or two possible concert opportunities during the summer as well. Participation in specific concerts is subject to members’ own availability and willingness to commit to the rehearsal and performance schedule. Members are not required to participate in every concert. However, to remain on the active membership list, members are requested to participate in at least one concert per year.
Rehearsals generally take place on Sundays from 6:00 to 8:30 pm in Wallace Chapel at Hills Church, 207 Washington St., Wellesley Hills, MA (note: the chapel is not the main sanctuary). The number of rehearsals scheduled for a particular concert depends on the complexity of the work (or works) and the overall familiarity with it (or them) of the singers who have signed up for that concert.
NWC does not impose dues or other fees. Occasionally, members will have to purchase music. Otherwise, the only costs to members are those associated with travel to rehearsals and performances. In some cases, members receive remuneration for parking or other expenses associated with performing in a specific concert.
NWC holds periodic auditions throughout the year. If you are interested in auditioning for NWC, please contact us through the form on our Contact page.
