Auditions

Our Winter concert has wrapped, and we are looking for potential members! Come join us this January at open rehearsals.

 
 

You're Invited to Join Us!

We invite potential new members to join us at our first two rehearsals of the Spring & Winter concerts. 

Rehearsals for our April 2018 concert start in January. The first two rehearsals (Jan. 9 & 16 @ 7:00 PM) are open to anyone expressing an interest to join. Auditions will follow the rehearsal on the 16th. 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.
