Auditions are 15 minutes. Prepare a short selection to perform unaccompanied that complements your vocal style.
(i.e. hymn, aria, lied, folk song, etc.) We'll also ask you to run through a few vocal exercises to demonstrate your vocal range, sight-sing a few short passages, and sing back a few short note combinations to test your tonal memory.
You will be evaluated on:
Show us what you've got.
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).
However, we have many types of singers from different musical backgrounds, who may or may not have all those skills. The most important factor is a passion for music, a commitment to choir and the ability to collaborate with a group.
We're excited for you to join us!
