Concert Dates

December 15-17


Highrock Arlington, 14 Mill St.


Christmas Concert Sign-Ups and Auditions

The Highrock Christmas Benefit Concert is Back!

We love nothing more than to help people connect to God, connect to God’s people, and connect to God’s purposes in the world- and the Christmas Concert is a way to do all three at the same time! We get to share the beautiful and compelling message of God’s great love for us shown in Jesus Christ. Highrockers plan, prepare, rehearse, and serve together in a variety of fun and meaningful ways over the holiday season. And the concert becomes a space that we can invite our neighbors into while supporting one of our partner organizations. It’s the Highrock community at our best!

Our goal is to have a choir that is between 50-70 members! If you’ve been a member of our Christmas Concert choir at any point (Online included), consider yourself “grandfathered” in! All you need to do is sign up below after reading through details and commitments, and you will be added to an email list, where we’ll send out more information.

If you’re new to the Christmas Concert at Highrock and are interested, you won’t regret joining us! We have a simple video audition process.  Please click on the “Audition” button below for instructions.

    Audition Uploading Instructions

    We want to make the audition process as easy as possible! Simply record a one-minute video of yourself singing along to one of your favorite worship songs playing in the background. Please feel free to choose any moment in the song that highlights your range or singing ability. If you are unsure of which song to sing, here are a few suggestions:

    When you are done recording, please upload your video to the link at the bottom of this page.  

    The link will prompt you to submit your name and email address. Please utilize an email address that you would like to use to receive updates regarding the Christmas Concert. One extra helpful step would be if it’s the same email address that is used for your MyRock account.  

    Please NoteThe ability to read sheet music is helpful, but not required.
