Audition to be on the roster for CHORAL AUDACITY!
CHORAL AUDACITY is a project-based ensemble with a large roster of singers from all over the US. Months prior to each choral project, 24-40 singers (6-10 sopranos, 6-10 altos, 6-10 tenors, and 6-10 basses) are contacted to participate in the rehearsal/concert week. The ensemble does not rehearse regularly, but rehearses with a few days prior to each choral project. The ensemble you see at this concert may not be the same ensemble you see at the next concert. Think you have what it takes to give us a shot?

· The ability to learn music outside of rehearsal and prepare an entire program with very little rehearsal is very important.

· A curiosity for diversity and inclusion
Singers must provide:
· A recommendation letter from a choral director
· At live auditions, singers are asked to sing 2 solos of choice with contrasting styles. If auditions are submitted electronically, please send YouTube or SoundCloud links.
