The church is located at the corner of 4th and L Streets.

On Monday, September 17, the Chorale will hold an Open Rehearsal Night, when interested singers may join the rehearsal to experience singing with the Chorale. Rehearsal begins at 7:00 p.m. at the church in Livermore.

"The Open Rehearsal Night is an opportunity for interested singers to see what it's like to sing in the Chorale," explains John Emory Bush, Artistic Director and Conductor. "It gives singers considering an audition a chance to 'try us on for size' and see what a great experience singing with the Chorale can be."

The 2007-2008 concert season highlights include performances in December of Jackson Berkey's Anniversary Carols and John Rutter's Dancing Day, and in March, Carl Orff's well-known choral masterpiece Carmina Burana at the Bankhead Theater, Livermore Valley's new performing arts center.
