Getting involved with VOCO is easy. All you need to do is join a program cycle. Here’s how it works:
Choose the cycle(s) that most interest you: Reach Out A Hand, Beaming With Pride, Black Music Matters, or Roots.
Register for those cycles below
Show up for your first rehearsal!
Truly, it’s THAT easy.
Creating unity is impossible without a commitment. When you join a cycle, you commit to:
Thursday night rehearsals. 6:30-8:30pm, Dayton Opportunity Center 1445 Dayton Street, Aurora
Revival Day. Revival Day is the first day that all youth, community partners, and artists involved with one cycle convene for division-defeating experiences, community dialogue, and music-making. Revival Day happens once each cycle, and is always held on a Saturday from 9:00am-5:00pm at the Lakewood Church of Christ.
Gathering Day. Gathering Day is our second and final convening of youth, community partners and artists for division-defeating experiences, community dialogue, and music making. Gathering Day ends in a ticketed public performance that showcases the unity between once-divided cycle participants.
Independent rehearsal. Cycle participants will receive rehearsal materials they need to engage on their own time so they can have all songs memorized by Gathering Day.
Participation fee per cycle: $95. For information about qualifying for our scholarship program, contact us. Write the word scholarship in the subject line.
