The New Choral Society, under the direction of Dr. John T. King, will be holding auditions for all voice parts by appointment on Friday, June 25 and Monday, August 2 at Hitchcock Presbyterian Church in Scarsdale. Sign up to audition at newchoralsociety.org/auditions.
About the audition:
Each audition will last about 15 minutes, and no prepared material is necessary. The audition will include vocal range exercises, vocal agility exercises, pitch-matching and sight-singing. The audition will be socially distanced, and you will be separated from Dr. King by a plastic barrier. More information can be found at newchoralsociety.org/auditions.
About rehearsals and performances:
Rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30 PM at Hitchcock Presbyterian Church in Scarsdale. We perform 3 concerts a year in December, March and April/May, though this season has an additional concert in October.
About the chorus:
The award-winning chorus is an all-auditioned, balanced group of 48 singers who meet Monday evenings from September through May in Scarsdale, NY. Now in its 28th season, the chorus performs classical masterworks with an orchestra and features soloist from many of the world’s most famous stages, including the Metropolitan Opera.
There are no financial commitments (dues, music purchase, ticket sales, fundraising, etc.) and singers are provided one complimentary ticket for each concert. For more information, or to schedule an audition, visit newchoralsociety.org/auditions.
