- Schedule an audition time here or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Singers will be notified via email if they are invited to callbacks.
Audition Information: Please come prepared with a short selection to sing
unaccompanied that shows your choral voice at its best (e.g. hymn, aria, lied, folk song, etc.). You will be evaluated on vocal tone, intonation, tonal memory and sight-reading.
You will be asked to vocalize to demonstrate your vocal range, sight-sing a few short
passages to test your sight-reading, and sing back a few short note combinations to test
your tonal memory.
We are looking for singers with choral experience, good sight-reading skills, a good sense of pitch, precise tuning, smooth and flexible legato line, and an even/controlled vibrato (or no vibrato). That said, we have many types of singers from different musical backgrounds (who may or may not have all those things) who sing with our group– the most important factor is a passion for music, a commitment to choral excellence and the ability to musically collaborate with a group.
