The SPC Chorus is open without audition to all students at St. Petersburg College interested in preparing and performing the best major works in the choral repertoire. To be a part of the chorus, students enroll in MUN 1310, a 1-credit class that can be taken up to six times. The group usually numbers sixty voices or more, with classes meeting on Monday and Wednesday, from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. or Monday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.
Basic techniques of ensemble singing are developed through group and sectional rehearsals. This training, and the preparation of works for performance, with the experience inherent in the learning process, take precedence. Basic repertoire and rehearsal techniques, valuable tools in the music profession, are also stressed.
