Singers from the community are asked to pay $25 in dues per semester. They can be paid online or at rehearsals with cash or check payable to Stetson University.
Registered students of Stetson University do not pay the dues whether or not they are registered for the Choral Union. If a student is taking any courses at Stetson University, they do not pay dues.
The spring 2020 Choral Union repertoire will be available for purchase at the first rehearsal (see schedule above). The price will be $20 per singer. Every singer must have original, published copies for all rehearsals and performances. (For a community member, the total semester fee is $25 dues plus $20 music purchase = total $45.) For registered Stetson students, the only fee is the $20 music purchase.
