Hymns of Thanksgiving Choir 2012
Welcome to the choir page of the Hymns of Thanksgiving website. A choir is now being organized for Hymns of Thanksgiving 2012. The seating arrangement in the CenturyLink Arena allows us to organize a choir of not more than 274 singers, arranged as follows:
for a total of 274 choir members.
CHOIR APPLICATIONS MAY ONLY BE SENT THROUGH THIS WEBSITE, AND WILL ONLY BE RECEIVED BETWEEN AUGUST 1 AND SEPTEMBER 16, 2012. When you submit your application, you will receive an email confirming receipt.
After submitting your application, you will likely be contacted by your Section Leader, who will answer any questions you have and discuss with you the goals of the Choir.
The Hymns of Thanksgiving Choir is organized anew each year. Even if you have been in the Hymns of Thanksgiving Choir in previous years, you MUST submit an application in a timely manner to be considered for membership in the 2012 Choir. You will receive an email notification of your choir status by September 20, 2012.
Choir members will enjoy an intense and very rewarding choral experience. The Hymns of Thanksgiving Choir is not a “training choir.” A choir applicant should be well-grounded musically, capable of understanding and learning difficult music and be willing to blend his/her talent with others to achieve a “one-voice” choir. Because much of the music is quite challenging, choir members must be dedicated to attending the scheduled rehearsals.
Because former choir members have a keen appreciation for the Hymns of Thanksgiving choral experience, you are asked to be a means of communicating this choral opportunity to others. Please encourage other qualified singers (especially men) to submit an application.
