Community Service Internships
The Newburyport Choral Society (NCS) offers high school students an opportunity to sing with NCS as part of their community service requirements. This internship represents NCS’ commitment to supporting the performing arts and engaging youth in both music education and the performance of choral music that enriches the cultural life of Greater Newburyport and surrounding communities.
Membership and music fees are waived for students participating in this community service activity. Students may join in the Fall and/or Spring Concert seasons. They are expected to attend weekly evening rehearsals beginning the first Monday of September and January, perform in two concerts, and sell 2 tickets to the concert performance. We look forward to having young musicians join us and share in this wonderful enriching experience.
The Newburyport Choral Society is registered with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a Professional Development Point provider. Members of the Choral Society who seek PDPs must maintain a log of their rehearsal hours, performance participation and workshop attendance. NCS will provide the necessary certificate of completion.
