Love to Sing?  Join us!
We cordially invite you to join the Community Chorus of Detroit (CCD) for a fabulous spring, featuring some of the most beautiful and inspiring English choral music ever written, including works by Handel, Vaughan Williams, and Rutter.  Please see our Chorus Handbook for details (repertoire, schedule, venue, and more).  The CCD is a non-auditioned, 100-member ensemble, striving for excellence in all we do.  Our first two rehearsals are open rehearsals, and we cordially invite you to visit. We promise you a warm welcome, the joy and fun of sharing great music, and wonderful new friends.  Our first rehearsal is on Sunday, February 12.

Dues are $50 for the spring semester:

  • If you paid in the fall for the full season already, we’ll assume you’ll be singing this spring unless we hear from you to the contrary.
  • If you did not pay dues yet, please pay either 1) by Paypal below or 2) by check.  You can mail a check (written to “Community Chorus of Detroit”) to Linn/CCD; 9120 Dwight Dr.; Detroit, MI 48214-2944) or pay in person at rehearsal either 2/12 or 2/19 – our registration and payment deadline.  Please note that we are only able to give sets of scores to those who have paid dues.  If you wait to pay until 2/19, you are welcome to look on with another chorister in the meantime.
  • If you are experiencing financial difficulty and would like to join the chorus but are unable to pay dues, please contact us.  (Fall fellowships will be automatically renewed for spring.)  We currently have one fellowship remaining.  Fellowships are awarded confidentially.
