Sing With HCS
If you want to learn more about us, you’re in the right place. Read to learn how we continue to grow and serve the community.
Haywood Choral Society (formerly the Haywood Community Chorus) has a long and proud history of presenting classical and contemporary music to local audiences. Membership in the chorus is open to the Haywood Community at large, ages high school and older. Anyone with serious interest in choral music is welcome to join the chorus. Some of the music selections can be challenging; therefore, the ability to read music is helpful, though not mandatory. The chorus performs two concerts a year, but members sign on for one season and renew their membership each subsequent season. A Christmas concert is scheduled for the first Sunday in December with rehearsals beginning in early September; a spring concert is scheduled for the first Sunday in May with rehearsals beginning in early February. Occasional concerts in the community may be performed during the year, but participation is strictly on a voluntary basis.
Singing together is a wonderful experience of community. Joining together with fellow music lovers, learning new music, singing familiar pieces, and making friends are what choral music and Haywood Choral society is all about.
For more information about the chorus, visit our website haywoodchoralsociety.org, look us up on Facebook, or call director Kathy Geyer McNeil at 973-224-1022 or Publicity Chair, Laura Schnabel at 828- 557-9187.
Current membership fees are $30.00 per season, for the purchase of music which then belongs to the member. Scholarships are available upon application. Please note that COVID vaccinations and recent boosters are requirements for participation. All interested singers please send a membership request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
