Audition Information

Welcome to Wesleyan Concert Choir!
Just so we do not to spend the entire first class period on auditions, I invite you to sign up for a brief, informal, meet-and-greet audition prior to the first rehearsal. There are no specific requirements for the audition; we will simply go through several warm-up exercises to determine the range and flexibility of your voice (a placement audition). If none of the times available fit into your schedule, please, DO ATTEND the first rehearsal anyway (we will jump right into singing!) AND make an individual appointment with me for a later date. Members of the Fall 2013 Concert Choir do NOT have to re-audition.
