Singers receive music about a month
before the first concert in the form of audio (MP3) files and PDFs.
The MP3 files will be customized for each voice part. Singers who
want to study the music in advance can view the PDFs (sheet music)
on their monitors to use in conjunction with the MP3s.
In addition, a binder with sheet music will be given to each member
at the rehearsal before the first performance.
$30: includes MP3 and PDF files and sheet music, as well as a
concert CD or MP3 files. Binders are distributed but must be
returned after the final performance so that they may be reused the

There will be a group buffet dinner at each venue preceding the
concert at $15 per person per dinner. Family and friends are
welcome. Vegetarian options will be available. Meals need to be
