What

  • What is the audition like?
    A brief, 5-minute check of your range, voice quality, and ability to read music.

  • Do I need to prepare anything?
    No. We will ask you to sing simple scales, and do some basic sight-reading. You may be asked to sing a small portion of a song of your choice, but it can be as simple as Happy Birthday.

  • When does University Chorus rehearse?
    We rehearse Mondays from 7:30-9:30pm. The maximum ensemble size is 150 members. Our first UChorus rehearsal will be on Monday, September 9!

What

  • What will I do in the audition?
    Dr. Nelson will ask you about your previous choral experience, vocalize you through your range, and ask you to sightread.

  • Do I need to bring a prepared piece?
    This is optional. If you have one, it would be to your advantage to sing a prepared piece. It gives you an opportunity to show your musicality and phrasing. A classical piece is best, although a folk song is also acceptable. If you don't have a piece, not a problem.

  • Do I need an accompanist?
    No, Dr. Nelson will serve as your accompanist.

  • When does Concert Choir rehearse?
    We rehearse in the Schwartz Center on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-5:30pm and Fridays from 4-5pm. Our first rehearsal is on Friday, August 30 at 4pm.

When/Where

  • When are auditions?
    Audition dates for the 2019-2020 season will be held on August 26 (3:30-5pm), August 27 (3-5pm), August 28 (3-5pm and 7-9pm), and August 29 (3-5pm).

    Dr. Nelson's office - Schwartz 301. The audition sign up sheet is on his door, so fill out your name when you know you are free!

  • When will I know if I made it into Concert Choir?
    The roster will be posted outside Dr. Nelson's office soon after auditions are completed.
