Join the Chorus
The Choral Arts Society of Frederick (CASF) is a volunteer organization open to those in the community who enjoy singing. Openings for the full year (September – May) concert season are available, particularly in the bass and soprano sections. New members are accepted into the chorus twice each season (September & January). Interested parties should contact Lynn Staininger, CASF Choral Director, by email to schedule an appointment to meet with her. Potential applicants should be prepared to sing. Skilled sight-readers are preferred as well as singers who have good vocal production.
Dues are $110 per semester. Dues must be paid by the third rehearsal unless other arrangements are made. Other financial responsibilities include purchasing music and proper concert attire.
FCC students taking CASF as a credit class do not have to pay dues, but are responsible for purchasing their music and concert attire. Music costs approximately $40 each semester.
Dues/music fees must be paid by cash, check, or paypal during the first 2 rehearsals. If you cannot pays your dues/music fees by the second rehearsal, submit a written statement to the Treasurer explaining your situation. We will work with you to make arrangements.
Time: Rehearsals are held Tuesdays from 7:45 to 10:00 PM, with new sessions beginning in September and January of each year.
Location: Room 145, Arts & Student Center (Building F), Frederick Community College, Frederick, MD
