The IMC prides itself on maintaining a professional appearance at formal events. We want to help you look your best on stage! Members will be responsible for providing their own formal wear. Further information will be disbursed early in the season to allow members time to gather their uniforms. Our staff will take your measurements, provide you with a detailed list of requirements, and direct you to the online store with our vendors to assist you in purchasing all formal wear needed.
The IMC rehearses weekly on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm. During mainstage production periods we also rehearse on Sundays from 6-8pm. Most rehearsal take place at Roberts Park United Methodist Church, in downtown Indianapolis.
The rehearsal schedule generally follows a typical academic calendar, breaking for the winter holidays and summer vacation. While we hope to have you at every rehearsal and performance, we understand that you will have various professional and personal obligations throughout the year. The IMC is happy to work with your schedule to be as flexible as possible!
The performance schedule varies from year to year, but consists of two mainstage performances at Marian University Theatre: a winter holiday show and a spring concert. The group also performs at various community and philanthropic events throughout the year.
First and foremost, finances should never hinder a singer from joining the IMC! The chorus is happy to offer financial assistance and payment plans to alleviate any financial burden. In addition to wardrobe cost, each member pays $125 annual dues.
