Rio Rancho Youth Chorus and Children’s Chorus of Rio Rancho are accepting new members for grades 2-12 from now until Sept. 9.
“We accept singers of all experience levels, abilities, genders, identities, backgrounds, cultures, and orientations. No auditions,” reads a press release from Rio Rancho Youth Chorus President Neal Shotwell.
The season starts on Saturday, Aug. 26, when the informational meetings begin at Star Heights Recreation Center. The Children’s Chorus, which is open for students from grades 2-5, will have its meeting from 12:30-1:30 p.m., and the Youth Chorus, which is open for students from grades 6-12, will have its meeting from 2-4 p.m.
The enrollment fee is $125 per season, and discounts will be provided to families and those who sign up by Aug. 14. Rehearsals take place every Saturday from Aug. 26 through Nov. 25, and the concerts will take place in early December.
“Music is for everyone. The choruses are a safe, welcoming place to experience and participate without judgement or the stress of solo performance,” Shotman said. “Come to learn about music, meet new friends and have fun.”
