Welcome to the oldest choral organization in Sussex County! We are delighted that you may be considering joining our group. We hope that you will find much joy in sharing our love of music and song, as we strive to present high-quality choral music to the community.
We have all heard the old adage: “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” Well, a chorus is only good when it is well rehearsed and has a cohesive sound. In order to achieve a unified, harmonious sound, it is most important that our members make every effort to attend all of the rehearsals. We ask that each member miss no more than 4 rehearsals per semester. If there are extenuating circumstances, please speak to our director, Joe Piccirillo: 862-268-1423, firstname.lastname@example.org. We want all of our members to have the best experience possible.
Rehearsals & Participation
Concert Attire (note this is currently under review)
We are a friendly group and love to get together to socialize and share good food and fellowship. We usually try to have a winter party, schedules and weather permitting, and we almost always have a summer picnic. Friendship and fun are just two of the “perks” of being a Sussex County Oratorio member – along with the joy of making music together.
