Joyful Voices of Inspiration rehearses most every Monday (see schedule below) from September through June at the First Parish Unitarian Church, 35 Church Street, Watertown, MA. We would be glad to have you join us.
We are a non-denominational community gospel choir. Our incorporation papers state that “the specific purposes for which this choir is organized are to operate exclusively to perform, and promote the appreciation of, gospel music for charitable, educational, and cultural purposes…".
Membership is open between in the fall of each year. Almost ALL our music is learned by rote with just the lyrics distributed on paper. Rarely do we use sheet music and a large number of our singers are not sight readers.
To be a member all we ask is that you:
- commit to learning your music, and sing energetically!
- attend the vast majority of our rehearsals and performances (we understand that every one has a conflict crop up on occasion).
- make an effort to get to know your fellow choir members
- be an involved part of the group and
- have fun.
Membership dues are $75 for the entire season, September - June, and are payable when your membership application is accepted, however alternative payment arrangements can be made if needed.

revisions to the schedule will be reflected on the calendar below.
