Information for Current Members
Attire for Choral Union rehearsals, including dress rehearsals, is casual.
Choral Union members must obtain appropriate performance attire for the concerts. Singers may purchase or borrow any assigned clothing items they don't already have.
Choral Union community members must attend at least 12 of the 13 rehearsals, including the final rehearsal with orchestra. Failure to do so will result in one not performing in the concert. The final rehearsal must not be the one you miss if you need to miss a rehearsal.

Dues and Fees
Singers from the community are asked to pay $10 in dues per season. These funds will be placed in an agency fund at Stetson University and shall be used at the conductor's discretion to develop the ensemble. Example expenditures may include hiring instrumentalists or soloists and providing social events.
Registered students of Stetson University do not pay the dues whether or not they are registered for Choral Union. If a student is taking any courses at Stetson University, they do not pay dues.
Please see the payments section below for information on paying for printed music.
Thank you for paying online for your expenses. Please follow the instructions closely. There are two links below. In order to ensure that payments go into the proper account, please closely read each link and use the one that applies to you:
- Pay Choral Union Dues (currently $10 per semester)
- Pay for printed music, choir dresses/uniforms, other music, etc.
You can still pay for any and all expenses in person at the School of Music with either cash or a check made payable to "Stetson University."
The Spring 2014 Choral Union Repertoire will be available for purchase at the first rehearsal (see schedule above). The price will be $10 per singer. Those who have the 1992 Novello Edition of Handel's Messiah may use their own score and will not need to purchase a score, but the conductors recommend you buy a clean score if there are many markings in your personal score. Every singer must have an original, published copy for all rehearsals and performances. For a community member, the total semester fee would be $10 dues plus $10 music purchase for a total of $20. For registered Stetson students, the only fee is the $10 music purchase.
Score Markings and Rehearsal Recordings
Score markings will be sent out via e-mail. Make sure the managers have a current email address from you.
