Whether you are coming from another choir as an experienced singer or if you've not sung since your third-grade talent show, you are welcome to audition. Don't be scared of the word "AUDITION!" It is really just a time for us to evaluate a few things. First is "pitch retention," which means you can match and sustain pitch given to you on the piano. Second, we need to know your "vocal range/part." Basically, this helps us figure out how high or low you sing. The audition allows us to place you in the correct section. Finally, the audition gives the Artistic Director a chance to meet you and hear your story! In a chorus of about 200 people, this is an important time to get to know our new members.
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. There is a fee to participate in the Chorus. Dues are currently $65 per semester and are payable prior to each semester, in August and December. Dues cover the cost of music, rehearsal and performance spaces, staff, orchestra and musicians for concerts, advertising, etc. There is also a one-time assessment for a music folder and concert attire. The Chorus has rehearsal guidelines and expectations of its members. These are discussed during new member orientation.
An entire village of people works to ensure the Chorus runs smoothly. We highly encourage member involvement with our many committees and events.
Auditions for Summer 2021 will be held on Tuesday, April 27 by appointment only.
Audition sign-ups will be open soon!
