Join the New Choral Society


Auditions are held yearly during the summer to fill any openings within the chorus. We do not have openings in every section every year, however, we are always happy to hear interested singers in the event space becomes available.

If you are an experienced singer and interested in auditioning, please contact us at info@newchoralsociety.org to schedule an audition.

What to Expect

You will be asked to sing for our Artistic Director, Dr. John T. King, who will lead you through vocal exercises to showcase the range and size of your voice, and you will be asked to sight-read a brief passage. You do not need to bring a prepared piece. The audition process will take approximately 15 minutes.
