      The board of the North Hills Chorale is excited to announce that the Chorale will return to singing starting on September 13, 2021! After more than a year away from music due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are eager to get back to music making. 

 

  • Careful considerations have been given to allow for a safe return.                 Here are the protocols we will follow:

 

  1. All singers must be fully vaccinated with at least two weeks since their final dose of the vaccine was administered prior to rejoining.
  2. Singers must be ready and able to sing with masks if requested or required during the semester. Masks will be optional unless otherwise stated.
  3. Singers will maintain a 3’ distance during rehearsals when possible.
  4. Full choir rehearsals will be one hour in length followed by sectionals on a rotating basis per week. Rehearsals will run from 7:30-8:30 pm with 30 minute sectionals to follow. Sectional rehearsals will be held in a different rehearsal space than the full choir gathering.
  5. Hand sanitizing stations will be amply available for use when arriving for and during rehearsals.
  6. Rehearsals will be broadcast live on Zoom for any chorale members unable to attend. If absent, singers should participate in the Zoom session, while muted, and take any and all notes provided during rehearsal.
  7. Any member who feels ill or shows signs of Covid-19 should not come to rehearsal. The singer should contact their section leader and participate in the Zoom session.
  8. Part recordings will be available on the chorale website and members will be encouraged to learn their parts outside of the rehearsal time. This will allow for the most efficient use of time while gathered together weekly.
  9. These guidelines may change throughout the semester if local or regional conditions dictate.

 

  • To help bring in more singers, for the Fall ’21 session, membership dues will be set at $42.50 per singer. This reduced amount will be in effect for the upcoming session only and dues will revert to $85 per singer starting in January.

 

  • Due to construction at Kearns Spirituality Center, rehearsals will be held at:
    • Memorial Park Church

      8800 Peebles Road

      Allison Park, PA 15101

 

  • It is important to gain an idea of how many singers will be joining us this session. Please complete this attached Google Form if you plan to join us in September:
