Auditions

We are looking for new cast members for our June 2018 concert, entitled Proud.

Open rehearsals are April 17 & 24, 2018, with auditions to follow.

 
 

You're Invited to Join Us!

We invite potential members to join us at our first two rehearsals of each concert. 

Rehearsals for our June 2018 concert start in April. The first two rehearsals (April 17 & 24 @ 7:00 PM) are open to anyone expressing an interest to join. Auditions will follow the rehearsal on the 24th. If you have scheduling conflicts, we'd still like you to audition, and arrangements can be made directly with the Artistic Director.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held Tuesday nights at 7 PM - 10 PM during the regular season (September - June), usually consisting of three concerts per season: Winter, Spring, & June (Pride month).  We meet at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Downtown San Jose (1100 Shasta Ave., San Jose, CA).

 

 

Preparation

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, 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 it's 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 rehearsal files. 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.
