This training will be approved and paid for by the chorus.
  • Compensation is negotiable and will be based on experience as well as potential future growth. In addition, expenses for International, district, and chapter dues are covered by the chapter. Necessary travel and accommodations for chorus events, and director's unforms required, will be covered by the chapter.
