How do I become a member of the Voices of MetroWest?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member will get back to you!
Where do rehearsals take place?
We typically rehearse at the First Congregational Church (2 East Central Street, Natick). If you are interested in checking out a rehearsal, please contact email@example.com in advance to confirm the location!
Do I need to audition to sing with Voices of MetroWest?
There are no auditions to join. The choir is open to anyone who loves to sing!
What kind of music do you sing?
Every season, something different! Our repertoire includes a cappella, showtunes, rock, R&B, jazz, folk, country, pop, motown, and gospel.
What is the time commitment?
Each concert season will have separate registrations, allowing you to sing in one and/or many concerts throughout the year. The Rehearsal Seasons will have regular Wednesday rehearsal sessions (7:00-8:45pm) and a few Saturday sessions (usually 11am-3pm), culminating with a concert weekend of two performances. Additionally, each vocal section will hold at least two optional supplemental rehearsals throughout the season.
Can I come to a rehearsal and try it out?
Absolutely! The first three rehearsals of the season are open—come and rehearse with us! After the third rehearsal, we still welcome visitors, but they will not be able to officially join the choir until the following season.
How much are membership dues?
Dues for each season are $150. If you have any concerns about the financial commitment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about alternative ways to support the choir. You can pay via PayPal here, or send a check to:

What is the refund policy if I decide not to continue singing?
You can obtain a refund through your second rehearsal. Please contact email@example.com to request a refund.
Do I need to read music?
No, reading music is not a pre-requisite for singing with us. We encourage you to use a voice memo app to record your part at rehearsals so that you can practice during the week. All music must be memorized.
What part will I sing?
Voices of MetroWest sings in 4 sections: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. During the first rehearsal, we will organize singers into one of the choral sections.
What is the minimum age limit?
The minimum age to sing in Voices of MetroWest is 14 years of age, subject to the approval of the current season’s director. Children are to be accompanied by an adult.
What happens if I miss a rehearsal?
We understand that you may have to miss a rehearsal from time to time; however, missing several rehearsals may negatively affect a performance. The expectation is that members who miss rehearsal will take time to catch up with material on their own.
Are your venues handicap accessible?
Our rehearsal space and concert venues are handicap accessible.
How can I find transportation to rehearsals / concerts?
Our vision is to make Voices of MetroWest as user-friendly as possible, including transportation. Transportation arrangements can be coordinated for anyone desiring to sing. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
