General Assembly Choir
New this year: Registration for choir is taking place before General Assembly (GA). Onsite sign-up will only take place if space is still available.
The 2016 Choir is full; pre-registration for choir has ended.
Each year a talented group of choral singers gathers to practice and perform for the General Assembly (GA) audience. Typically the choir participates in the Sunday Morning Worship and the Closing Celebration, and sometimes other events or hymn sings during GA.
The 2016 Choir Director is Dr. Glen Thomas Rideout, Director of Worship and Music at the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor, MI.
Participants must be registered for General Assembly. Choir registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The choir is capped at 180 singers with balanced sections and the spaces are filled quickly. Singers may pick up their music at the first rehearsal. If all available choir spots fill, a waiting list will be formed for spots that may open after the first rehearsal on Wednesday.
The cost of choir octavos has been generously covered by the UU Congregation of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Members of the 2016 General Assembly Choir will not be required to pay for their choir materials ($15 per person value).
Singers are required to sing in both the Sunday Morning Worship and the Closing Celebration. Attendance at all rehearsals is expected.
