Here is some information about being a part of the Puget Soundworks community.

Do I have to be able to sight read to sing with Puget Soundworks?
Nope! Sightreading is a great skill, but not a requirement to sing with Puget Soundworks. We are looking for passionate singers and general musicianship and are excited about bringing together an inclusive singing community.
When and where does Puget Soundworks rehearse?

During virtual operations, rehearsals take place via web conference on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-8:00pm. When we are able to gather in person again, rehearsals will be on Wednesdays from 6:30pm-9:30pm in Capitol Hill. A full rehearsal schedule is provided to singers after auditions.

What kind of music does Puget Soundworks sing?

We sing an eclectic mix of music from a variety of genres and musical traditions. We are especially focused on including repertoire that is written or arranged by women and people of color.

Do I have to be gay to sing in Puget Soundworks?

Nope! We welcome LGBTQ people and their allies and embrace diversity of all kinds. You do not need to identify on the LGBTQ spectrum to sing with us.

Is there an age limit for singing in Puget Soundworks?
Singers must be 18 years of age or older.
Does Puget Soundworks require singers to pay dues?
We ask singers to pay dues to support the chorus, but no one is ever turned away for inability to pay. Even though we are currently operating virtually, we still need financial resources to keep the organization going — purchasing music and distribution rights, paying staff, providing technology infrastructure, and so on. Our dues structure is a $60 standard rate, $15 reduced rate, plus the option for any singer to submit a no-questions-asked dues waiver and pay $0. Information about how to pay dues and how to submit a dues waiver will be available roughly one month after rehearsals begin each semester. Again — no one is ever turned away for inability to pay.
