Eastside Midday Singers

Eastside Midday Singers

How is repertoire selected?

Repertoire is selected by the Artistic Director who looks for quality literature that matches the ensemble's difficulty level and considers the needs for divisi and balances other programmed pieces.

Does EMS sing only secular repertoire?

EMS sings both secular and sacred repertoire for the exclusive purpose of its artistic merit.  EMS does not sing sacred repertoire for the purpose of worship nor do we exclude repertoire on the basis of a sacred text.

Is there a corporate discount available?

Currently, there is not.  If you are interested in having your company participate in this type of partnership with EMS, we would appreciate the introduction and will follow up with the appropriate department.

Is there a discount available for preregistration for the full year?

Preregistration discount begins January 2020.

What if I have to miss several rehearsals or the performance? Or is it too late to join?

That's OK!  Because EMS is tuition-based, participants self-select whether to enroll in a concert season or not.  Participate or abstain as you require or desire for rehearsals and performances.  Though it's ideal to join in January, May, or September, join anytime!

I'm going to miss half the season. Can my membership be prorated?

No.  Membership includes all rehearsals, performances, sheet music, and educational materials for the concert season.
