Although we rehearse at St. Saviour's Church in Park Slope, and give most of our concerts there, we are a completely independent organization. We are strictly a volunteer organization - other than our director and assistant director, no member receives any kind of remuneration for his or her services.
Our dues and concert revenue cover the costs of hiring our Music Director and Assistant Music Director, purchasing music, renting the space in which we rehearse and perform, paying the occasional professional singer, and engaging instrumentalists and soloists for our concerts.
We have an executive committee which meets several times each semester. It is composed of the officers (President, Treasurer, and Secretary), section leaders (1st Soprano, 2nd Soprano, etc.), and an assortment of other positions (music librarians, head of the publicity committee, membership).
Our singers take turns providing refreshments for our rehearsal breaks, and contribute to the planning, setup, and clean-up of our after-concert receptions.
