Locating Groups

Hello all!
 
Does anyone know of any platforms with which to seek choral groups in my general vicinity? 
 
Any help is appreciated!

Hi Jason,
 
You could use one of the features of ChoralNet!  If you look at the top of CN website, you will see tabs.  In fact, you probably went to the Forums tab to begin this discussion.  If you look at the sixth tab from the left, it will say *Directories*. Click on it and there will be a choir directory section as well as a geographical location and ChoralNet Users sections.  You should be able to find choirs if you look for your state and city.  Hope this helps!

That depends on where you are.
 
My part of the world has http://choirsofmelbourne.com/ - very comprehensive since it allows searches by rehearsal suburb, rehearsal night and voicing, and then includes information about fees, repertoire, audition policies, etc
I'm sure there are similar directories in other communities

If your general vicinity is in New England, you can refer to the Choral Arts New England directory:
The list can be sorted and different kinds of groups can be selected. (I maintain that list, as well as the Choral Arts New England comprehensive calendar of performances and other events.) There are also regional consortia, such as the Greater Boston Choral Consortium, which are good resources for information about choruses in the area.
 
If you're in the NY city metro area, you might try the Vocal Area Network, which is chock full of listings of all kinds:

Jason, in the barbershop world: 
Men can search for a Barbershop Harmony Society chapter here: http://ebiz.barbershop.org/ebusiness/Public/ChapterProximitySearch2.aspx
Ladies can find a Sweet Adelines International chorus here: http://sweetadelines.com/findachorus/ or a Harmony Inc chapter here: http://www.harmonyinc.org/locate-a-chapter.html
The important thing is that you find a choral group that fits your interests and skill levels.  Good Luck!
