The New Dominion Chorale is always delighted to welcome new members! We are a singers' cooperative with more than 100 members led by Artistic Director Thomas Beveridge. There is no audition to join, and our members hail from a wide range of professional and musical backgrounds. Our concert history includes many great classical choral works, as well as modern ones. 


Rehearsals are held weekly on Monday nights at the McLean Baptist Church, and additional sectionals may be held after rehearsals or on Saturdays. 

For the 2023-24 season, masks will be optional but welcome for both rehearsals and performances. Members are strongly encouraged to continue following CDC COVID guidance, and to consult with their own doctors regarding the best ongoing protocol of vaccines/boosters for them.

Members may miss a limited number of rehearsals per concert, but attendance at dress rehearsals is mandatory. Performances are typically held on Sunday afternoons at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center at Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus, or St. Luke Catholic Church in McLean. 


Not sure if you want to join? You're welcome to visit! Simply come to any of our rehearsals on Monday evenings at 7:30, in the Fellowship Hall of McLean Baptist Church (first contact us at to confirm we're rehearsing that day), and introduce yourself to your voice Section Leader, the Membership Coordinator, or the Chorale President (any member can point these people out).  


If you do wish to become a member, you'll need to complete the member registration form and pay the associated dues. Payment of dues indicates that you have read and accepted the provisions of our Membership Agreement, as well as our Privacy Policy.  Annual membership dues for this year are $250 per singing member. Singers also buy and keep their music; the total cost for music is generally less than $50 per year, and practice CD's and other learning resources are available for most concerts. In addition, required concert attire for men is a tuxedo, and women must purchase one of four approved concert dresses, ranging in price from $60 to $100.


New members may join at any time; however, you must still have attended the minimum number of rehearsals in order to sing a given concert. You must also be correctly attired at the performance. For female members, this may mean allowing a few weeks for dress orders to arrive and hemming to be completed. Please note that member dues are not prorated for those who join partway through the season, nor for those who only wish to sing one or two of the season's concerts.


A new member orientation is provided early in the season to familiarize you with the workings of the chorale and to answer any questions you may still have. You will also be given access to the Members Section of this site, where you will find a Membership Handbook and other useful information.


We look forward to meeting you!
