Auditions are open to everyone and are scheduled at the beginning on January 10th, 17th and 24th, 2017. Take the opportunity to audition us by attending our Open Rehearsals and get a feel for the group.
To make a reservation to attend a rehearsal, or to get more details about the audition, please email us at email@example.com. If you are unable to make an audition time, alternatives could be available at the discretion of the Artistic Director.
You do not need to prepare music for your audition but you might come ready to sing an excerpt from a favorite song. Our Artistic Director will guide you through some vocal exercises to determine your vocal range (so he can assign you to a section), and whether you can match pitch. No need to be nervous. The process is painless! We promise!
Do I have to be able to read music?
The ability to read music is not a requirement for membership in SVGMC, but its definitely advantageous because the Chorus rehearses and memorizes music using written scores. On that basis, the Artistic Director will want to have you sight read some simple sheet music. Since some of our members learn their music by ear, we also provide mp3 files which are available to download for free. Every rehearsal begins with vocal exercises, not only to warm up your voice, but to develop proficiency and facilitate your voice blending with the Chorus.
