Join Us!


Regular rehearsals are on Mondays from September through May, from 7 to 8:30 pm in the Damenverein Room of the Athenaeum, 401 East Michigan Street, in Indianapolis.

During the summer, we meet every other week. Visitors are encouraged to come and meet the singers. As you enjoy singing with us, we hope you'll consider the year-round pleasure of rehearsing and performing with us as a member of the chorus. We always post our summer schedule here, just to make it easier to find us.


If inclement weather conditions cause cancellation of a rehearsal or event, WTHR Channel 13 and WRTV Channel 6 will post the notice. Members will receive e-mail.
