THINKING OF AUDITIONING?
We recommend that potential performing members attend at least three full rehearsals before requesting to audition. Rehearsals allow you to become familiar with our repertoire as well as the singing style of the chorus.
1 - Vocal Assessment
Once you express interest in becoming a performing member of the chorus we will schedule a vocal assessment with our director. He will listen to your singing abilities to assure that we have you in the best part for your range. We will also determine you ability to match pitches and how you blend your tones.
2 - Practice Quartet
After your vocal assessment, you will be placed into a section. The leader of the section will make sure you have access to all the learning material. Once you feel confident with the entire audition song - words, pitches, etc. - you will be asked to sing the song in a practice quartet with the Section Leaders from the sections other than your own. You may have to do this a few times.
3 - Audition Quartet
So it's the night of your audition. You will be expected to sing the entire song in a quartet with the other Section Leaders. You should be prepared to sing at performance level, with note accuracy and storytelling. We audition following our regular rehearsals.
