Choralis schedules new member auditions on specific dates several times a year. Auditions for the 2020-21 season will be held in the late August-to-September timeframe. To request an audition or obtain more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Choralis audition has five parts.
- You will have the opportunity to discuss your choral singing background with the artistic staff.
- You will perform a solo (aria, art song, hymn, or your voice part from a choral piece). You will need to bring three copies of your music – one for yourself, one for the artistic staff, and one for the accompanist.
- You will be asked to sing scales so that your vocal range can be determined.
- You will complete a tonal exercise.
- You will be asked to sight-read a short section of music.
Auditioners are notified of the result within five days.
