Weekly rehearsals are Mondays from 7:00 to 9:30pm. Prospective new members - rehearsals for our Spring 2018 concerts begin Monday, January 8th.

Northwest Chorale is always looking for new singers. If you are looking for a place to sing that will challenge you and satisfy you at the same time, the Chorale may be just the place for you. The Chorale currently consists of over 60 singers from the greater Seattle area. Members come from all walks of life, but have one thing in common – our love of music.

Northwest Chorale is both demanding and easygoing at the same time. Auditions are held informally by section and take place during the first several weeks of rehearsals. Singers are expected to keep up during rehearsal and to be able to sing the complexity of music we perform. Singers are also expected to regularly attend rehearsals with no more than three absences. If a member misses more than three rehearsals, he or she must receive permission from the director to perform with the choir.

Here are two tracks from a recording of the chorale's performance at the Greater Seattle Choral Consortium Festival in October:

A membership donation or “dues” helps to cover administrative expenses and the cost of putting on concerts – usually hiring professional soloists and instrumentalists. The suggested donation is $55/season, plus a small amount for purchasing scores when necessary, with provision for seniors, students, and those who are disabled.

We are a friendly, inclusive, and active organization. All members are encouraged to serve on the Chorale board, as well as work with others in advertising and fund-raising.
