Membership and Sponsorship

Becoming a member is easy! Simply bring your voice or instrument and come to rehearsal. No auditions are required for participation. Rehearsals are held Saturday mornings from 9:00am to Noon at St. Marks Lutheran Church located at 2499 North Helen St. in North St. Paul..

All members pay an annual (tax deductible) fee of $15.00 which is used to pay for programs and other expenses for the organization. Choir members are required to purchase their own music and concert attire. Orchestra music is purchased and owned by the organization. Members are expected to participate at all scheduled rehearsals and be fully prepared for concert participation.

A very special thanks to St. Mark's Lutheran Church, North St. Paul for the use of their building as a rehearsal facility, and all the churches that provide our concert locations free of charge.

 The Minnesota Food Bank Network estimated that an average Thanksgiving   meal costs  $35.87.  That same $35.87 if given to a food shelf will provide 179 meals.  They  also reported one in eight people in Minnesota will use the food shelf.   In the last 22 years,   the  Woodbury  Chorus and  Orchestra has  helped   to  raised  well over  $400,000  for  local  food   shelves, thanks  to the generosity of our audiences.  That is enough money to provide over two million meals.   Please help us to raise even more money this year.
