We are holding auditions for advanced singers in ALL SECTIONS to join our ensemble for the
Audition Session #1

Audition Session #2

Audition Session #3
Monday, August 27, 5:30pm – 9:00pm
The choir performs intricate and complex repertoire with a range of 6-9 concerts per season in between September and July. The choir rehearses regularly on Wednesdays 7:00pm - 9:00pm with the occasional other weekday / weekend depending on the concert schedule.Due to the size of the ensemble and fast-paced concert season, every effort must be made to be present at all scheduled rehearsals in accordance with our attendance policy. As a result, we kindly request serious inquiries only.
If you can commit to the majority or all concerts, attend weekly rehearsals, and plan regular preparation outside of rehearsal, you'll be a great fit!
When and where? All auditions will take place in downtown Ottawa in the choir room at St. Joseph’s Parish (151 Laurier Ave East).
What to prepare?
Singers will need to prepare three short choral excerpts that will be sent prior to the audition date. The choral excerpts are in SATB format and you are asked to prepare the part that best demonstrates your voice range and technical capabilities while performing in front of an audition panel. Excerpts are to be performed a cappella. There will also be a short sight reading test and scales.
The audition will be approximately 10 minutes. No hired accompaniment is needed.
