WELCOME to Durham Community Choir (DCC)!

We're delighted to have you join us. We are a non-auditioned community choir, open to all people 16 years of age and older who love and wish to sing. We aim to have a joyous, educational and enjoyable time making music together.

Registration will open via the choir website when we have determined the cost for this semester. You may register via web, online at durhamcommunitychoir.on.ca (credit card, e-transfer, or Paypal only).

    * Username: dccmember
    * Password: satb1234

3. Once logged in, in the Main Menu (top right of the screen), the bottom option, select "Music Files"

4. Click on the folder DCC F'20 Files. The syllabus and chorister info sheet template are in this folder.

5. Click on the sub folder F'20 Scores to access the .pdf scans of the scores.



Here's an alternate access to (some) e-scores for this semester:

Web Site                  https://www.jwpepper.com/sharemusic

Access Code              eeForWHo/Eo=

Once you click on the web link, at the bottom of the screen will be a popup that says "Have an Access Code?" Enter the above access code in the field, and hit Enter/click on View Music to view the available list of titles. Then, click on the View Music button next to the title you'd like to view. Once you select a piece, try the full-screen view.

I think this service might work well on tablets.

A few caveats:

1. This service does not include all publishers of our music this semester, so some titles will not be available.

2. I haven't loaded all available titles of our rep for this semester; I will do that as we introduce them in our Zoom rehearsals.

3. This service doesn't have a way to give access by choir, so DCC and ES repertoire is all mixed together in one listing. You can tell the choir rep apart by voicing (DCC=SATB, ES=II/SA/SSA).



Debbie McMackin has provided a new list for our gift cards.

The order form for our next order will be attached to these announcements, and the cutoff date for ordering will be Friday, October 30, 2020.



Encourage your friends, family, colleagues, neighbours, etc., to join us! We'll freely accept new singers until further notice!



The syllabus for this semester is available on our website in the members-only section.

Login information is in the last section of the announcements.



If you have not already done so, please fill out the chorister communication information pdf sheet that was sent on September 21; if you do not have access to that, please contact Daphne. It is on the website, as noted above. You will need to save it first, fill it out, save it again, and send it.
