YOUR INVITATION TO JOIN THE GRANDE CHORUS
The Grande Chorus is organized under the auspices of The Mississippi Chorus and conducted by Artistic Director, MARK NABHOLZ.
How Do I Join The Grande Chorus?
Joining the Grande Chorus is as easy as filling out this online registration form and joining us at rehearsal. It’s THAT simple.
You will be met by a section representative who will introduce you to fellow choristers – we want you to feel at home!
Please arrive at least 30 minutes early your first time.
WHERE & WHEN DOES THE GRANDE CHORUS REHEARSE?

Monday evenings 7:00 pm–9:00 pm. All rehearsals begin promptly. Please arrive at least 30 minutes early your first time.
Faithful rehearsal attendance is the only way the ensembles of The Mississippi Chorus can succeed. While 100% attendance is the goal, 75% attendance is required to participate in the performances. If for some reason you need to ask for an exception to be made, you are asked to contact the Artistic Director.
Dress rehearsals are held the night prior to the concert date at the performance site unless otherwise announced. Attendance at all dress rehearsals is required.
