Chorus Auditions

Auditions for the 2018-19 season will be held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, August 1 and 2, beginning at 7 pm.

To schedule an audition email chorus conductor, Ronald Jenkins: rjenkins@fcchurch.com 

What to expect in an audition:

Each audition lasts about 8 -10 minutes and consists of the following:

  1. The auditionee sings a prepared piece of classical music—a simple piece is very acceptable. The purpose is to demonstrate the person’s voice and musicality. An accompanist is provided. Please bring 3 copies of the music: one for the pianist and a copy for the chorus conductor, as well as your own. It is not necessary to memorize the piece.
  2. Each person will be given some ear-training/testing (repeating intervals) and be asked to vocalize.
  3. Each person will be asked to sight-read; often the choice is a Bach chorale

The auditions are held in Room 1 of the lower level of the Ohio Theatre,
55 E. State Street. Enter the building at the back of the open air walkway on the east side of the building,
and then take the elevator down one level where a chorus member will greet you.

The chorus rehearses on Tuesday evenings, 7:15 to 9:45 pm in the same room where the auditions will be held.
