What is the Known World Chorus?
The Known World Choir is a group of people from across the Kingdoms of the SCA who love to sing a cappella choral music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Singers gather, rehearse and perform at major SCA wars like Estrella, Lilies and Pennsic.

To access the music and get specific information about the Known World Choir at Lilies, you can access our website at http://www.lilieskwc.com (This site is currently under construction but should be live in the next week). Rehearsal schedules and other information will be posted as soon as it is finalized.

You don't need to have any early music experience to sing in the Lilies KWC. A desire to sing and be able to carry a tune is all that is needed. Previous singing experience and/or the ability read music is helpful but not required if you are willing to put in the effort to learn the music before arriving at Lilies. To facilitate this, the music for the Lilies KWC will be made available at www.lilieskwc.com in PDF and MIDI formats that will allow everyone to print off and learn their parts in advance. It will also help to be present for as many of the rehearsals as possible. Music will also be available for download from the Known World Choir Yahoo Group webpage or by postal mail from the director (as a last resort, please)
