COMMITMENT: The East Mountain Community Chorus, as an outreach of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, operates under a mission to share God’s Word through word, song, and music. Singers are expected to participate in all rehearsals to present the best possible program for our community.
Singers are responsible for bringing their own copy of Handel's Messiah vocal score arranged by Max Spicker, to all rehearsals and concerts. If you do not have one, it can be purchased from Music Mart (3301 Carlisle NE, Albuquerque), or from online sources such as ABE Books or Amazon (note some used books may be available on Amazon for about $5 total, including postage). We request a five dollar annual contribution from each Chorus member to help defray the costs of music, printing and postage. This will be collected at the first rehearsal on November 2.
You can contact us at the East Mountain Community Chorus by email for any reason by clicking on Contact Us at EMCC, then entering your message.
If necessary, you may call our chorus director, Roland De Rose at 298-9150.
