Annual Dues

Musica Sacra depends on donations  from its sponsors,  its public, and from its members.

Musica Sacra provides the vocal scores for its members. After the concert, these scores are kept in a library for future us.

Dues partially cover this and other costs. Dues are completely volutary. No one is prevented from participating for non-payment of dues.

Dues remain the same as in years past:

  • $40 per individual
  • $60 per household

You may pay in person at a rehearsal, send a check, or pay online.
