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 & SPRING SEASONS. Members are asked to pay dues in the amount of $195 which help offset the cost of sheet music, rehearsal tracks, and rehearsal and concert costs, including compensation for our conductor and accompanist. Dues are per single season and are 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. We are currently enforcing a rule that "All singers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 according to CDC guidelines”.
Our fall season commences with rehearsals on Monday evenings at 7 PM beginning on August 15, 2022. The performance will be on Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 at First United Methodist Church of Pacific Grove, aka "the Butterfly Church". To register, click here or go to: mpvoices.org/join.
Formal concerts may require a specific dress/costumingfor women and men at member cost. For women, black, floor-length dresses or skirts 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 or black suit.
A Note from Sean about the FALL/HOLIDAY 2022 season: I am just so excited to tell you about the Major Work MPV is going to sing this Fall! It is the Taylor Scott Davis MAGNIFICAT
I have not found a work this good in 30 years! In my opinion, it's even better than the Lux Aeterna!
It is totally thrilling, absolutely gorgeous, and perfect for our choir!!
