Whether building props for The Midwinter Revels, assisting in the office, singing in the chorus at Sanders, or providing audience support at our many programs, Revels volunteers are critical to our success. In our last year of live performances, volunteers donated more than 16,000 hours in support of our events and activities. Contact us at the link below to learn more about volunteer opportunities – we would love to have you join our fun and talented corps of volunteers!
While Revels hires a number of professional performers for its productions, our volunteer adult and children’s choruses are at the core of every show. We audition our Midwinter Revels chorus anew every year and encourage adults and children of all backgrounds to try out for each production.
Auditions for the 2023 Midwinter Revels adult chorus will be held June 2-4, 2023. Click the link below to sign up!
Auditions for the 2023 Midwinter Revels children’s chorus will be held September 8-10, 2023. Information will be available in the summer of 2023.
Revels Singers is a non-audition-based community chorus open to everyone who loves to sing. The mission of Revels Singers is to engage people through singing, explore choral repertoire from around the world, hone musical skills, and build community through harmony. For members so inclined, there are opportunities to perform each season. Learn more and register for the next session below!
Revels Education introduces cultural and seasonal traditions from around the world to children, tweens, teens, and adults. Our in-school and online enrichment programs, co-curricular performing arts series, afternoon and summer workshops, virtual skill-building programs, teacher resources, and innovative educational collaborations foster creativity, cultural literacy, and community.
There are many ways to describe what Revels is including “a spirited mix of folk music and storytelling, drama and singalong,..” (The New York Times);, “a reminder of our commonality” (Noel Paul Stookey), and “a unique way to celebrate the seasonal rituals of the world” (Yo-Yo Ma). Revels is also “an uplifting salve”, “a multi-generational celebration”, and “a way to learn and have lots of fun at the same time”. We encourage you to explore the resources below, join us for an event or class, and begin to discover Revels for yourself.
Our generous sponsors make it possible for Revels to produce world-class performances and educational programs for our audiences.
