Salem Community Chorus is a non-auditioned community ensemble. Our practice and performance season is divided into two terms: Winter (September thru December) and Spring (January thru May), with a break during the summer months.

We plan to resume in person rehearsals in January! While we do not know what the pandemic situation will be next year, at this time we plan to hold one-hour rehearsals at St. Mark. We hope to sing in concert in May and/or June, if public health allows.

Rehearsals for the new Season begins on Monday, Jan. 24th. New members accepted up six weeks.


  • Time: 6 to 7 p.m.
  • Location: St Mark Lutheran Church, 790 Marion St. NE, Salem, OR.
  • Parking: Please use the parking lot behind the church. Parking lot entry is from Winter St or Center St. The rehearsal space is fully accessible. An accessibility ramp is located at the back of the church.
  • Fees: Because of the shorter rehearsals, dues will be reduced to only $40 for Spring Term.. Students: Apply to get your fees paid by our Student Fees Scholarship.

If for whatever reason you choose to drop the chorus during the first 3 weeks of the term, simply return your music and we'll refund your fees.

N95/KN95 masks (the ones that look like duck bills) offer the most room for singing and provide the best protection. More expensive masks created specifically for singing are sold online.
