Thinking about joining Auckland Choral?

Hopefully you will be inspired to audition! Whilst the audition process can seem a little scary, we make it supportive and ‘painless’! The audition process is an important aspect of ensuring we maintain the high choral standards for which we are known. Below maps out the process for joining Auckland Choral. Give it a go – you’ll see that we are a group of diverse people, with a shared passion of choral singing. We’re a friendly community. Singing is fun, uplifting, inspiring… tonic for the soul. At Auckland Choral you will also enjoy with a healthy dose of musical challenge… and you’ll make some wonderful new friendships too!
Auditioning for Auckland Choral
If you would like to audition for Auckland Choral, the following is the process involved:
- You will be invited to attend a couple of rehearsals and sing with the choir. This will enable you to find out if the choir’s repertoire and method of working are right for you.
- If you are then keen to audition, you will be given a preliminary “voice check” to gauge your current level of vocal ability and suitability for the choir, and to confirm where your voice sits best in the choir.
- You might be invited to sing in the next concert if you are able to fulfill the minimum attendance requirements for rehearsals.
- Following your first performance with the choir, you will be given a full audition. This will involve singing a prepared piece, some aural tests (singing back played notes, pitching notes in chords, and clapping rhythms), and sight reading.
On passing the full audition, your membership will be confirmed.
We rehearse on Wednesdays 7.30pm – 9.45pm
