Join the choir and sing with us!
Complete and send an application form to make an appointment for an audition time. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Mid-Season auditions will be held January 3, 2017, at 6.30pm.
The audition is comprised of the following pieces:
- Presentation of a song of your choice: This can be anything (2-3 minutes long) from the classical repertoire such as an aria, an art song, a hymn, or other selection reflecting your voice to best advantage. It does not have to be memorized. We will provide accompaniment. Please present a copy of your selection for the RES pianist at the time of the audition. We do not accept an outside pianist or an audio tape.
- Sight reading test: A simple classical score will be provided. You will be required to follow the score with piano accompaniment.
- Hearing acuity test: The piano plays 3-5 random notes while you listen and then sing them back.
- A series of scales: This serves to identify your range so that the appropriate section can be assigned.
Join us for an exciting spring and summer season including Haydn’s Creation in the Winspear a UK Tour in July, with a preview concert for local RES fans in McDougall Church.
We will also be guests of ESO singing Fauré’s Requiem and Hetu Symphony #5 in February
