The Lincoln Theatre Company Choristers is an intergenerational adult secular choral group composed of singers from all of Lincoln and vicinity. The Choristers is open to capable singers, generally age 16 or older, who are willing to be challenged and give a commitment of time and effort to the group. (Exceptions to the minimum age requirement may be made at the discretion of the Director.)  The Choristers’ home base is the Lincoln Civic Auditorium (home of the Lincoln Theatre Company), but it may also perform in other venues in and near Lincoln.


Eric and Candy Rainwater, a talented husband and wife team of musicians, are the Choristers’ director and accompanist, respectively. The Rainwaters are well known in the greater Sacramento area for a variety of musical abilities. They lead children and youth choruses, vocal and instrumental music workshops, dramatic musical productions, and teach private lessons.


The Choristers’ next season begins September 6, 2017 leading to our annual holiday concert series in early December. You may schedule an audition by submitting the form on the Choristers link under the Auditions tab on this website. You can also contact Eric Rainwater at  or by calling 916-428-2056. Auditions normally consist of your singing (solo) a song of your choice and responding to a few musical prompts by Eric. Please bring a brief informal summary of your musical/choral experience to your audition.


Weekly rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM in the Lincoln Hills Community Church choir room.


Chorister members are asked to provide a membership fee of $50 for each of two seasons during the year. Sheet music, at a cost of approximately $20 per concert, is an additional member expense; members keep their music for their own personal libraries. Choral folios are available for members for $20 each.


Come sing with us!
