A commitment to excellence.
Each member of LeagueAires commits to attending rehearsals and performances with consistency so that we bring our best to every group we have the privilege of sharing music with. Members are expected to be able to perform the music and choreography with confidence. This may mean committing additional personal time to practicing and reviewing the content, so as to remain sharp for each performance.
September through Mid-January:
LeagueAires rehearsals are held Mondays, 9:30AM-12:00PM, from September through mid-January at Colonial Church in Edina.
Mid-January into May:
LeagueAires perform on Mondays, mid-January through April, with one performance at 10:30AM and one at 1:30PM, at locations throughout the Twin Cities. A half-day commitment is also available. In addition, LeagueAires annually sing at a Junior League of Minneapolis evening meeting—usually in March or April—and at our Community Concert the last Tuesday evening in April.
- Members may not miss more than four rehearsals.
- Members may not miss more than four full days of performances. (Or four half-days for members doing the half-day option.)
If a member faces unplanned, extenuating circumstances that result in missing more than the permitted number of absences, she will need to work directly with LeagueAires leadership to determine the viability of staying in the group.
Members are asked to pay a $50 social fee each year, called Sunshine Fees.
During performances, there are additional opportunities for members to share their speaking, dance, or other special talents.
In addition to singing, members are also encouraged to serve every few years in a support role (such as stage managing, attendance taking, costume carrying, etc.) or a committee assignment.
If you like to sing, consider spending a Monday morning with us to see what Leagueaires is all about. You’ll be charmed and touched by the music we share and the difference we make in people’s lives.
Recruitment Day is the time of year (usually late January or early Feb) when we invite prospective members to sit in on a rehearsal from 9:30 – noon prior to joining us for lunch and watching us in action during a 1:30 performance at a local assisted living center. Please e-mail us if you are interested in details about our next recruitment day.
