About Us

We are a community chorus located in sunny Westminster, California united under the belief that great music can be made when people come together.  We are a volunteer ensemble made up of singers from all walks of life who simply enjoy being part of a community. We carry this belief beyond our rehearsal space and frequently do performances for local civic events, retirement facilities, community events, as well as our own concerts. Whether you have been singing longer than you can recall or are looking for a new hobby we encourage any all potential choristers to join us.

The Westminster Chorale currently is a choral home for 40 singers representing a diversity of age, backgrounds and musical taste. Members range from highly experienced professionals to enthusiastic amateurs and new recruits are always welcome.

Auditions

Auditions for new singers are held during the first two weeks of the season as well as periodically throughout the season. The ability to read music, or having previous choral experience is always a plus but not a requirement. If you would like to learn these skills or already have them and are dedicated to creating music and the joy that singing with others brings come join us. Please contact us by email at jared@westminsterchorale.org to setup an appointment for our August 26th Audition Night.

Commitment

The Westminster Chorale performs three major concerts per season. In addition, the Chorale sings at private, community and civic functions around the Orange County region. As a member you are expected to:

  • Commit in advance to the scheduled performance dates for the entire season.
  • Attend rehearsals as scheduled, beginning Monday evenings in September through the last concert in June.
  • Review your music at home so that Chorale rehearsals can focus on technique and section challenges.
  • Pledge to Donate $20 per month in Chorale dues or $25 per family
  • Purchase Concert Attire ($20 – $30 one time).
  • Assist in selling tickets to WC concerts.

Rehearsal Schedule

Members of the Westminster Chorale rehearse once a week on Monday evenings. All rehearsals:

  • Are held at City of Westminster Senior Center in their Dining Hall. 
    8200 Westminster Blvd. Westminster CA 92683  (Google Maps)
  • Take place from 7:00pm-9:00pm each Monday. 
    Technical rehearsals are added the week of the performances and are listed on the season concert schedule. Additional sectional rehearsals may be scheduled as needed.
  • Begin promptly. 
    Chorale members are expected to arrive on time. Rehearsals are demanding and rewarding. Break times offer members the chance to chat and get to know new singers.
