Our spring semester begins January 30 and the performance is May 1. Rehearsal is every Monday night.

Intern is not required to be a singer or attend all rehearsals but it would be helpful to drop by a few rehearsals for the learning experience and to assist the Chorus with marketing. Time 7pm at St. Peter Episcopal church on the corner of Jackson Ave and S. 9th Street.

Oxford Civic Chorus has a few Board meetings which the intern should be available to attend. These are usually on Monday nights before rehearsal; 5:30-ish. They are scheduled as needed. The first one tentative for January 30. To apply contact Kristin Rogers at
