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 4, 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.
