ABOUT YOUR AUDITION...
If you've been in choral groups before, you probably have a good idea of what to expect in an audition. Our audition process is informal and friendly. We want to get to know you, hear you sing, and and answer any questions you might have.
When you come for your audition, we'll do our best to take you at your assigned time. If you didn't sign up for a time, feel free to come and we'll work you in as soon as we can. We'll ask you to fill out a short information sheet that tells us about your background and gives us the contact information we need so we can let you know the results of your audition. If you sign up online here, you can fill out that form ahead of time.
If you can, it's a good idea to bring a prepared piece to sing--something you are comfortable with that will help us get to know your voice. An accompanist is provided. If you don't have a piece prepared, we'll find something easy and familiar that you can sing for us.
We'll vocalize you to find out your range and how you approach different registers in your voice.
And we'll ask you to sight-read your voice part in a hymn or chorale while our accompanist plays along with you.
We'll talk with you a bit about your background, and answer any questions you have.
We'll also make sure you understand our concert schedule and can commit to the season if you are accepted.
We will need to complete all the auditions before we can let you know the results, but we will contact you by email as soon as decisions have been made.
Depending on the year, some sections have fewer openings that others. It's always important that we maintain an equal balance among the four sections of the choir, so if by chance we can't find a place for you this time, we hope you will come and audition again.
