Frequently Asked Questions

  • What size is the ensemble? 

The ensemble is currently 41 members, but we have room to grow. Please visit the auditions page for more information.

 

  • When and where does BCCV rehearse?

We rehearse most Sunday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00pm at St. Timothys United Methodist Church in Cedar Falls.

 

  • What kind of music does BCCV perform?

The majority of the music will be from the traditional choral canon. However, I am interested in music outside that traditional framework – early music, music from a variety of cultures, vocal jazz, and more.

 

  • How do you plan to “advance new choral music from young and aspiring composers?”

Each season we will feature music by a new composer. 

 

  • How “independent” of a singer do I need to be?

To ensure the most efficient use of our rehearsal time, singers will be expected to prepare notes and rhythms outside of rehearsal. Rehearsal tracks and practice CDs will be provided as necessary. 

 

  • Where will BCCV perform?

I would like to have the ensemble perform in a variety of venues, to make sure we reach as many members of the community as possible. If you are interested in having BCCV perform for your event, please contact Alice.
