  • A Friday Dress Rehearsal precedes each concert as well as, at times, an extra Tuesday evening rehearsal
  • The Amabilis Singers generally present 3 concerts a year in the Lower Mainland, most often at the New West Christian Reformed Church

Skills:

  • New members must have basic music skills, including the ability to read music, match pitch, blend, and sing (or learn quickly to sing!) in various languages
  • Prior choral singing experience is required
