Sing in the choirs

To audition for the adult choir, you must be able to read music and be willing to commit to a schedule of Monday night rehearsals plus 15 to 20 performances/events a year. It’s a big time commitment, but can be very satisfying. Late summer auditions for the 2017-2018 season are scheduled for August 28, 29 and by appointment. Sign up here for an audition time.

The auditions usually consists of vocalizing, sight reading and  singing a prepared piece like an aria or art song or an excerpt from one of the larger choral works like Messiah in your part. Accompaniment will be provided.

We perform with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and world-renowned soloists. Experience our friendly choral community of 100 singers.

2017-2018 adult choir repertoire includes:
Handel: Messiah
Britten: Ceremony of Carols
Poulenc: Gloria
Bernstein: Chichester Psalms
Bach: St. John Passion
Beethoven: 9th Symphony

Children and youth are auditioned to place their voice in the choir, and we will provide the education needed for the chorister.

To ask about an audition, please email administrator Amy Dale or call 519-578-5660 x 5290
