Choirs & Opera Auditions

Concert Choir and Women's Chorus auditions for Fall 2017 will take place on Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27. A sign-up sheet will be posted outside of Dr. Patterson's studio (Thompson House 210) by Monday, August 21.

Students are not asked to sing a prepared solo. The five-minute audition will consist of an assessment of each student's natural vocal quality, ability to match pitch, range, aural awareness of melodic and harmonic patterns, ability to sight-sing, and finish with a brief interview.

Choirs are open to all! We encourage non-music majors (particularly those with prior choral experience) to participate in the Women's Chorus or Concert Choir. For more information, email Dr. Trent Patterson.
