Auditions for 2020-2021 Season

Posted on August 20, 2020

The Choral Society of Durham invites singers in our community who share our love of choral music to audition for our upcoming season. Auditions for new members in the fall of 2020 will be done via Zoom sessions with our artistic director starting on August 12 and running through September 9. After scheduling an audition, you will receive an electronic version of a short musical excerpt and a link to an online recording of it. You are asked to learn the music and then, at your audition, to sing it in time with the recording. Your audition will also include some simple warm-ups that cover your entire range.

Qualifications for acceptance include:

  • The ability to learn music independently
  • Accurate pitch
  • Enough volume to be heard in a large choir
  • The ability to blend well with other voices

Once you have auditioned, you should attend all rehearsals until you receive the audition results, since any rehearsals missed before being accepted will count as absences. Audition results are normally sent by email after all auditions have been completed.

To schedule an audition, please complete and submit the audition form.
