Payment may be made by cash or cheque payable to Sherwood Park Festival Singers Society:

Music must be returned at the end of each rehearsal until membership is paid. After you’ve registered and paid your membership fees, you’ll receive a package containing each piece of music required for the term.

Choristers are given a folder of music for the term (Fall or Winter). Members may make notes in their music in pencil (please don’t write in ink). Music is then to be returned at the end of the term. Please don’t punch holes in any music; instead, you can request a plastic music holder, allowing you to store your music in a three-ring binder.

To help you learn your part, practise at home and prepare for our performances, you’ll receive a rehearsal CD.

Unless otherwise stated, practices will be held every Tuesday from 7:30 through 9:30 p.m. at Festival Place in Sherwood Park. Practice times may be extended as show dates approach.

See Performances for performance dates, times and locations.
