Getting involved with VOCO is easy. Here’s how it works: you need to join what we call a program cycle. It’s a three-step process:
Choose the cycle(s) that most interest you: Reach Out A Hand, Beaming With Pride, Black Music Matters, or Roots.
Register for those cycles right here on our website
Show up for your first rehearsal!
It’s that easy to get started.
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 community partners and students in 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 community partners and students for division-defeating experiences, community dialogue, and music making. Gathering Day ends in a ticketed public performance that showcases the new-found unity around a given subject that cycle participants have created.
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.
