Chorus

Auditions

Chorus auditions for the 2019-2020 season will be held Monday and Tuesday evenings,
August 12 and 13, beginning at 6:30 pm.

To request an audition time, email chorus master, Dr. Ronald Jenkins, at rjenkins@columbussymphony.com

What to expect in an audition?
Each audition lasts about 8 -10 minutes and consists of the following:
1) The auditionee sings a prepared piece of classical music—a simple piece is very acceptable. The purpose is to demonstrate the person’s voice and musicality. An accompanist is provided. Please bring 3 copies of the music: one for the pianist and a copy for the chorus conductor to follow, as well as your own. It is not necessary to memorize the piece.
2) Each person will be given some ear-training/testing (repeating intervals) and be asked to vocalize.
3) Each person will be asked to sight-read; often the choice is a Bach chorale.
►►The auditions are held in Room 1, lower level of the Ohio Theatre, 39 E. State Street.

A history of the chorus and what this coming season will be can be found on the CSO website also. The chorus rehearses on Tuesday evenings, 7:15 to 9:45 pm in the same room where the auditions will be held.

If accepted for the chorus, the first rehearsal will be the following Tuesday evening, August 20, 7:15 pm.
