With August fast approaching, we are getting into gear for our third season as a choir. This means that if any talented singers in the Milwaukee area are interested in joining our choir, we’ve got two audition dates coming up!
Here’s the info you need for auditions:
Where are auditions held?
Greendale Community Church, 6015 Clover Lane in Greendale, WI, the same place we hold our rehearsals on Tuesday evenings.
When are auditions happening?
The evenings of Tuesday August 18th and 25th between 6 and 9 PM. We will assign you a specific time when you contact us.
How do I schedule an audition?
Fill out a contact form on our website or send an email to email@example.com. We will then work with you to schedule a specific time for you to audition.
What will auditions consist of?
Auditions will consist of some scales to test your range, pitch matching exercises, sight singing and possibly singing a well-known tune (last year we used My Country Tis of Thee). We will also have you fill out a short application form to give us your contact information and your background as a singer. You will be singing for the director of the choir and two members of the executive board.
Do I need to bring everything?
Nope, we will have all audition materials available for you on site!
How will I find out if I made it?
Our director, Ben Bedroske, will follow up with you via phone within a day or two after your audition.
Do I need any previous choral experience to be considered?
While we don’t require previous choral experience for admission, it is definitely encouraged. We learn a lot of music in a relatively short amount of time meeting only once a week, so we like to have singers who are able to learn quickly and be responsible for their own musicality.
Are there any other restrictions?
We do ask that all auditionees be 22 or older, as this is an adult group geared mostly toward post-collegiate age singers. Otherwise, we welcome singers of all ages and vocal ranges.
If you have any other questions about our audition process, we encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to spread the word, as we’re always happy to meet talented new singers!
