More than 50 Dallas women comprise The Women's Chorus of Dallas. They are now accepting new members.

So, you aspire to be on the big stage with fellow talented vocalists, but you missed the Broadway/American Idol boat. Here’s a chance to live the dream without leaving Dallas, abandoning your family or quitting your day job.

Open rehearsals for The Women’s Chorus of Dallas will take place Mondays, Feb. 14 and Feb 21 at 7 p.m. During the rehearsals/audition you can meet the 50 or so existing choir members and learn more about what they do, such as singing classical and popular music for large audiences — this year they have performances planned at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre at the AT&T Performing Arts Center plus a special concert at the Texas Discovery Gardens. Many of the upcoming season’s shows benefit charities including National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, Resource Center of Dallas, Hope’s Door domestic violence shelter, and many others.

You don’t need prior experience or the ability to read music in order to make the cut, but you do need to be willing to attend all practices, held Mondays during the regular season from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. at the Sammons Center for the Arts, 3630 Harry Hines.

To sign up for one of the open rehearsals, contact the TWCD office at 214.520.7828
