What is FireChoir?
FireChoir is a cross-cultural black gospel, community choir of over 100 people. We sing American style black gospel music.
- We have two rehearsal/concert seasons per year; Spring and Fall.
- The choir rehearses weekly for 13 weeks, followed by several concerts in Amsterdam and other cities and/or countries.
- All participants receive a lyric book, rehearsal CD of your voice part, and access to website MP3 downloads.
- Also included is voice & diction training, stage presence technique and choreography instruction to prepare you for onstage performance.
- Social activities and workshops as time and schedules permit.
- FireChoir is a professionally led and managed choir.
- Experience FireChoir for yourself. Visit us during any of our rehearsals to see what it's like, then make up your mind whether or not you can resist joining!
Who can join?
FireChoir is open to everyone! People of all cultures, nationalities, religious or non-religious persuasions are welcome to join. We do not exclude anyone because of beliefs, race or musical experience. FireChoir is a professional and exciting musical adventure for everyone.
- Age limit: We accept members from 15 years old and up. We will also consider requests to allow younger members (13 - 14 years old) on an individual basis.
- Auditions: We do not audition people to select only the 'best' voices, as other choirs do. We audition people for "voice placement" purposes (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), to insure everyone can sing on pitch and carry a tune, and to evaluate individual progress of members so they will have a better chance at achieving their potential.
- Previous choir experience or the ability to read music is NOT REQUIRED.
