Thank you for your interest in joining the Community Chorus of Detroit!  We warmly welcome you to the chorus.  Since we are currently awaiting CDC approval to begin in-person rehearsals, the information below is provided as a sample, until we can resume our regular schedule.

RETURNING MEMBERS FROM FALL ’19 – including our Young Artists’ Program (Y.A.P.) participants:  We will assume you are returning, pending your dues payment (step D, below; not applicable for our Y.A.P. participants).  No need to complete the A-C steps below or contact us otherwise, unless you are certain you are unable to participate this spring, in which case, please email Diane Linn to let her know.  If you’ve already paid dues, you’re all set, and we look forward to seeing you at the first rehearsal; no need to contact us in advance.  (If you do not attend rehearsals or pay dues by 2/2, we’ll assume you are not able to be with us for this semester and will include you in our alumni emails.)

RETURNING CCD ALUMNI: If you have not sung with the CCD for one or more semesters, please let Diane Linn know that you will sing with the chorus this semester so that she can activate your Chorus Connection account.  Skip A-C below, and go directly to D.

NEW MEMBERS & CCD ALUMNI: To register for the CCD, please complete the four steps below – A, B, C, & D (D is dues; may be paid later). If you have questions about the chorus, please contact us and we’ll be glad to email you:

A. Please review the Chorus Handbook on our site first. This will give you all the info you’ll need, including venue, dates, repertoire, concert attire, etc.  By registering, you acknowledge that you have read and accept the terms and conditions of our liability waiver/disclaimer, per the Chorus Handbook. Registration for the spring 2020 semester  (including dues payment) is from 1/8-2/2, at the end of our second rehearsal.

B. Please send your responses to the numbered items below to, and we’ll get back to you soon.

  • 1. Your first and last name (If you are registering with a spouse or partner, please complete a separate registration for each person.)
  • 2. Voice part with divisi (e.g. tenor 2, alto 1, etc; if unsure, please make your best guess, and you can change your designation later, if needed; at this point, please give only one designation for voice part with divisi)
  • 3. Your preferred email address (one address only, please)
  • 4. Your preferred phone number (one phone number only, please)
  • 5. Your level of singing experience, on a 1-10 scale, with 10 high (1= basic sight-reading + limited high school/church choir or equivalent experience; 10 = proficient sight-reading + college singing experience/possible degree in voice + possible solo and/or professional singing).  Any level from 1-10 is fine and welcome!

C. We use Chorus Connection software for our CCD administration, so shortly after we hear from you, you will receive an email with the subject line “Welcome to the Community Chorus of Detroit,” with the email beginning “Diane Linn, from the Community Chorus of Detroit, has invited you…” To activate your membership in the CCD, please complete the membership info there and post your photo, following the quick and easy instructions. Chorus Connection is our online means of communicating with you as a CCD member, so please be sure to join ASAP when you receive your invitation.  We ask that you activate your Chorus Connection account, even if you aren’t quite ready to commit and would like to attend one of our two open-house rehearsals (9/8 and 9/15, the deadline for dues payment) before officially registering for the chorus.  By activating your account, you will receive all pre-season info and the first editions of our Wednesday Notes (our CCD newsletter), which has info you’ll need to participate.  Having your Chorus Connection account activated does not obligate you in any way.

D. You are welcome to pay dues on Paypal via our website homepage between 1/8 and 2/2 ($50 for spring), or you can register online but pay dues:
1. With a check to “CCD” by mail to Linn/CCD; 9120 Dwight Dr; Detroit, MI 48214 or
2. By cash or check at rehearsal on 1/26 or 2/2.
