We generally have two concerts a year - a Fall or "Holiday" concert in December and a Spring concert in April or May. Occasionally we add a 3rd concert depending on circumstances.
The Fall concert session typically starts on the first (non-holiday) Monday in September and the Spring concert session starts on the first (non-holiday) Monday in January. These are just guidlines for when a new season starts; please check the calendar to confirm these dates. The first rehearsal of each session includes official sign-up for the session and payment of fees so members should arrive early - generally around 7:00pm.
There is a modest session fee for singing with the main chorus - currently $30 ($40 per family) - and each member is responsible for paying for his/her own music.
Concert attire for men generally consists of a black tux or suit (dark suit if you don't own a black one) and a black bow tie. Women are required to purchase a uniform black top to be worn with a long black skirt or slacks for concert wear. The uniform top may be ordered by early October at a cost of $35. There are exceptions depending on the concert content and sometimes there are costumes involved for some when we perform pieces from musicals or operas.

We rehearse on Monday evenings at 7:30pm at the Wentz Concert Hall on the campus of North Central College in Naperville (click here for map). Our rehearsals generally last until 9:30pm and consist of a 15 minute warm-up and a short break at around 8:30pm.
On the week of a concert there will be a dress rehearsal, generally on Friday evening before the concert (we don't actually "dress" in concert attire). This rehearsal generally starts earlier in the evening than normal rehearsals and may extend past 9:30pm.
