Requirements & Policies


Each singer will be admitted to MUSICA NOVA by audition, and will possess the ability and willingness to learn choral parts on his/her own before full rehearsals are underway.  A steady sense of pitch and rhythm, a pleasing timbre, music reading skills, language flexibility, an innate musicality, and a willingness to achieve a common musical goal will be required.  Rehearsals will occur two to three times per month on a mutually agreed day depending on the availability of the singers and of the rehearsal space.  The duration of each rehearsal will be two and one-half hours.



Until MUSICA NOVA becomes well-established, each singer will pay monthly dues of $25.00 (September to May) to offset music purchase and rehearsal/performance space rental.  Once the viability of the ensemble is secure, donors and corporate sponsors will be sought.



MUSICA NOVA will not discriminate on the basis of age, color, mobility, creed, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
