THE AUDITION PROCESS
Step 0: Submit a Guest Registration Form to let us know you're interested!
Step 1: Complete a Vocal Diagnostic
A vocal diagnostic is a required preliminary step to audition. We offer slots for a diagnostic on two Thursdays at the beginning of June (before rehearsal). Its purpose is to get a first impression of your voice, your aural skills and identify your vocal range. For this diagnostic we ask you to prepare a 16 bar cut of any song of your choice (any genre). Should you be invited to audition, you will be assigned a voice part and receive learning material for the audition.
Step 2: Practice
We invite you to make use of our Guest Month and visit as many rehearsals as possible to get to know the chorus, get a feel for our culture, see how we work, and to practice your audition music in and after rehearsals. Attendance at one rehearsal is required, but we encourage two or all three!
Step 3: Audition
Auditions are 15 minutes long and include singing through the audition music (sung a cappella in a quartet) and an aural learning activity with members of the Music Team.
Step 4: Welcome Rehearsal
On the Thursday following auditions, new members will be welcomed into the chorus with a binder of our current repertoire and an assigned mentor to support them as they navigate their new journey with the chorus!
