First Rehearsal of 2014 (New Members Welcome)

  • Jan 7, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • GRC Rehearsal Space

Happy New Year! It's January, which means that Gotham Rock Choir, NYC's only Rock, Pop and Soul Choir, is beginning a fresh new cycle and admitting new members!

Some helpful info:

--GRC runs in "cycles" (think terms or semesters). Our new cycle--which is called "Cycle 11"--begins on January 7th and runs through the end of April. Rehearsals are once a week, on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 PM. Please be sure you're available for rehearsals on Tuesday evenings throughout the end of April.

--GRC is a performing choir. Each cycle includes a Cabaret Evening, where our members can perform their own favorite tunes as solos/duets/small groups, as well as a full choir concert held at the end of the Cycle. In addition, we may be doing some outside gigs. Previous outside gigs have included performances at Madison Square Garden, Barclay's Center, the New York City Veteran's Day Parade, the Knitting Factory, the New York Stock Exchange Christmas Tree Lighting and Gotham Girls Roller Derby.

--On the 7th, we'll be beginning work on 2 GRC Classics (pieces from past cycles): Three Dog Night's "Joy To The World" and Fun's "We Are Young." These tunes are downloadable from places like ITunes, or you can see them on Youtube:

Joy To The World:

We Are Young:

See our website for more info on joining GRC.

***GRC rehearses in a public school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Out of an abundance of caution for the students who attend there, we don't publish the address. Please write to GRC for the exact address.***

    I have very little singing experience. Do you except everyone who wants to join?

      To be a good choir member, you need to be able to sing the same notes as those around you. Assuming you can sing in a group, you have enough experience/skill to join.
