River City Choirs
Health Policy for Fall 2022 Classes:
Keeping in mind that singing can spread illness, and that we want to keep all of our students and their family's healthy, the following will be Choir and Music Class Health Policy for Fall of 2022.
1. Students who are sick (sniffles or mild illness counts as being sick), or who have been exposed to COVID-19 need to stay home.
2. With policy #1 in mind, masks and/or proof of vaccination will not be required to participate in choir or music classes. Of course, if a student prefers to, or needs to wear a mask, they are encouraged to do so.
Children's Choir is for ages 8 to 14. Youth Choir is for ages 12-18. Here are a few things you might want to know before registering. If you need more information, our complete Choir Policy can be found here:
Choir tuition is $45 per semester per student
Tuition may be paid on a semester by semester basis, or Fall and Spring Semesters may be paid together. There is a $5.00 discount per student for tuition paid by early registration dates. Early registration deadline for Fall Semester is July 15. Early registration deadline for Spring Semester is November 15.
Both Choirs rehearse at Capital West Christian Church Event Center on Friday Mornings during the school year
Fall Semester Choir begins the first Friday after Labor Day, and concludes the second week of December.
Spring Semester Choir begins the second Friday after New Year's Day and concludes the second week of May.
Students provide their own performance attire
Choirs wear concert dress to create a unified visual that doesn't distract from the music. With this in mind, here are our performance attire guidelines.
Both Choirs: Hair needs to be a natural human hair color and any jewelry or accessories subtle. Shoe heels need to be no more than two inches high. Skirts and dresses need to be knee length or longer. Dresses or blouses need to have sleeves and not have bare backs or show bra straps or cleavage.
Children's Choir Concert Dress is a white dress shirt or blouse with black slacks or skirt and black shoes. If wearing slacks, students should wear black dress socks that cover the ankles.
Youth Choir Concert Dress for young men is the following all in black: long-sleeved, button-down collar shirt, necktie, slacks, socks, and shoes. Concert dress for young women is a black dress, or skirt and blouse, with black shoes and bare legs or skin-colored hose.
