ANNIVERSARY CONCERT

Announcing FireChoir's
10th Anniversary Concert at the Zaan

"OH HAPPY DAY"

A reunion concert open to former FireChoir members

REUNION CELEBRATION

Calling all former FireChoir members!

Since FireChoir started in 2008 (and more than 60 concerts later) nearly 400 people have joined the choir at one time or another. You are invited to join with us once again and be part of this very special anniversary concert!

Reconnect with friends, enjoy your passion for music, and perform live on stage at the Zaantheater. Scroll to the bottom to see your options to sing with us.

NEW MEMBERS WANTED

FireChoir is taking new members as well! The Fall Season is still a normal stand-alone season so you can join without committing to also singing in the spring season and at the Zaantheater. We invite you to join...Sign up today.

REPERTOIRE

 

Oh Happy Day

Our theme is Oh Happy Day, a golden oldie loved by millions around the world and enjoying renewed popularity inspired by the movie Sister Act 2. We will also be reviving a few of FireChoir’s most popular titles from over the years.


New Songs

Naturally we will be adding new songs that promise to be exciting, emotionally moving and challenging to sing. When we combine great music, an incredible choir and an amazing venue, the results will be stupendous!

VENUE

FireChoir has contracted to rent Zaandam’s prominent Zaantheater for a 2018 spring concert. The Zaantheater is an exquisite theater with seating capacity for nearly a thousand people. Its full sized professional stage (complete with lighting, audio and staff to assist in every aspect of our production) will give us plenty of room to move! You will want to invite everyone you know to see you singing on its splendid stage.

TICKETS 12,50€

Tickets for our "Oh Happy Day" concert can be purchased online starting 1 July 2017 or at the theater's box-office until the night of the concert (or until it is sold out!). The ticket price includes a beverage during the interval.

REHEARSALS

Our reunion concert is an ambitious project and requires that we include songs from both our 2017 Fall and 2018 Spring seasons.

We have devised 3 registration options for your convenience. At least one of these options will accommodate your schedule. For further information, click on the option which suits you best:

1. Fall 2017 & Spring 2018 Membership

  • Everyone joining both Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 FireChoir seasons will be adequately prepared for the Reunion Concert in the Zaantheater. It's also possible to join for the Fall season only as it is still a stand-alone season.
  • The repertoire for both seasons (listening CD tracks, rehearsal tracks & PDF scores) will be available online this summer.

2. Spring 2018 Membership

Those joining only for the Spring 2018 FireChoir season will be required to also learn several songs from our 2017 Fall season. To aid you in learning this music, we provide the following:

  1. Access to the MP3 rehearsal tracks (available summer 2017).
  2. Website links to actual FireChoir rehearsals which you can follow at your pace and leisure.
  3. We will hold a workshop (sometime during our Spring season) for the entire choir to review these songs.

3. Finale Concert Choir (3 songs)

Former FireChoir members who have chosen this option will be invited on stage for the grand finale. Our last two songs (Joyful Joyful & Oh Happy Day) are from Sister Act II. We will also plan to perform an encore, so three songs will be sung in total. You will need to purchase a ticket for the concert.

Join FireChoir today

Sing with us at the Zaan!

Join Fall 2017: Several songs from the Fall season will be performed in our spring concert. Joining in the fall will give you a big advantage. Or if you only want to join for the Fall and not the Spring, that's fine too.

Join Spring 2018: You can still join in the Spring and perform in the whole concert, but you will have to catch up and learn several songs from the Fall season.

Join for our Concert Finale: Don't have time for a full season?  You will be required to learn three songs from rehearsal MP3 files and attend two choir rehearsals close to the concert, plus buy a ticket for the concert.
