If you’re thinking about joining CODA, here’s what you need to know! There are no auditions; we welcome any community members, high school age and older, to join us. Previous choral experience or music-reading skills are helpful, but not required.
CODA usually has 2 concert days per year, a Saturday in early December for Christmas and in April or May for Spring. Our Winter 2019 Concert will be held Sunday, December 8 at the Winthrop Performing Arts Center.
Rehearsals are held Tuesdays, 7 to 9 PM, at the Winthrop United Methodist Church, beginning after Labor Day for our Christmas season and mid-January for our Spring season. New members are welcome through the second or third rehearsal of each season; if you’re just curious, feel free to attend a rehearsal to see what you think!
Membership dues are $35.00 for each season (Sept – Dec and Jan – Apr/May). Dues may be waived in the case of financial need by submitting a written request to a Board member. Membership is free for High School students.
CODA By-laws state “Each member is expected to attend all rehearsals.” Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but we ask for members to present as often as possible. Please see the Vice President about absences.
