This year's season runs from September to May. Mandatory weekly rehearsals take place at the address above on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:30 pm.
All those who are at least 18 years of age and older who love to sing are encouraged to audition. We may accept younger responsible musicians on an individual basis according to vocal maturity and commitment. Singers of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to audition. You do not need to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be in the choir.
What to do:
First, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name, age, voice part, ward/stake (if applicable) or faith/background information.
You will receive a response within 1-2 days that includes an assigned audition date/time, a calendar and a membership guide. Please review the calendar and membership guide to be sure you are able to meet the attendance requirements. Once you have reviewed the materials, please confirm you are able to proceed with the audition.
Thank you. We look forward to meeting you!
How to prepare:
The audition is very friendly, and tailored for the individual singer. Remember, we are auditioning you because we WANT people to join the choir!
Auditions are 7-8 minutes in length. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out an audition form that will help us get to know you.
Prepare a hymn of your choice that shows your vocal range; sing melody first, then your voice part (sopranos should also prepare the alto line).
Vocal range evaluation – a few fun, systematic exercises that get your physical voice comfortable throughout your full range to help you find your place in the choir.
Listening skills – sing back a short phrase of notes played on the piano.
Basic sight singing – four measures, stepwise motion.
Basic music theory – identify key of sight singing excerpt.
