Auditions

If you decide you would like to join the Society, you will be asked to attend a short audition with the Music Director to confirm your membership. The audition will be quite informal.

You should be prepared to sing a short passage of something you know (please bring the music with you!) in your voice part. This can be either a song, hymn or part of an aria, etc. You will be asked to sing up and down a scale as far as you can go, in order to assess the range of your voice and which voice section you are best suited to. Helpful advice is available before the audition. The most important thing is whether you can sing in tune, can hold your part and will blend in. Good sight-reading is helpful but not essential.
