Auditions

Calling All Singers for the 2022-23 Season!

15-minute visits with potential new members will be held August 17 (5-7 pm) and August 21 (12:30-2:30 pm).

  • Please review the information on this page as well as the schedule for the fall session (September-December).
  • Fill out and submit your membership form via email to music@cathedralvoices.org. Include your availability during the hours listed above, in your email.
  • If you cannot meet August 17 or 21, please let us know; an online interview via Zoom can be arranged with notice.

Membership requirements:

  1. Come prepared to sing a short a cappella song of your choice (a verse and chorus or 16-bar portion of a song is fine).  There is no accompanist. We want to hear your natural voice, singing your best!
  2. Sight-sing a short musical passage (this will help us understand where you are in your musical experience).
  3. Sing a few vocalises as directed (these are simple exercises to hear your range for proper placement within the choir)
  4. A brief interview – our Conductor looks for many qualities beyond musicianship.

Commitment

The auditioned choirs of Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir are the core of this organization and set the standard for all Cathedral Voices does and represents.  A full commitment to attending rehearsals, studying your music at home (to prepare for rehearsals), and participating in performances is essential for every member.

In general:

  • Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings.
  • Fall Session concludes with a holiday-themed concert in December, in addition to outreach performances.
  • Spring Session begins late January and concludes with a concert in May.
  • There are always additional opportunities for outreach (community caroling, Valentine’s event, mini-concerts). All members are encouraged to participate as much as they are able.
  • Member Dues are $100 per semester. Financial aide is available.
