QUALIFICATIONS The Monterey Peninsula Voices welcomes all who are interested in singing. You don’t have to audition and you don’t have to be able to read music — but it helps. Each singer is expected to pay membership dues, perform volunteer tasks, obtain costuming, and attend rehearsals weekly.
MEMBERSHIP COST For Fall and Spring Seasons, Members are asked to pay dues, in the amount of $175,,which help offset the cost of sheet music and compensation for our Conductor and Accompanist. For Summer Season, dues are $75. Dues are per single season, Payable online when you register or collected at the beginning of each of our first two rehearsal seasons. Scholarships and/or payment plans are available if needed.
Formal concerts may require a specific dress/costuming for women and men at member cost. For women, dresses may be purchased through the selected vendor of choice in the range of $75+ dollars with prices subject to change. Men may be required to wear a tuxedo with a white shirt. Tuxedos may be purchased through selected vendors at a pre-arranged price, which must follow set guidelines.
Our non-formal concerts may require purchase of shirts or accessories by both men and women. These casual outfits will be determined by the costume committee yearly at member cost.
