The Claremont Chorale invites all experienced choral singers over the age of 18 years to audition for membership. To join, attend at least one of the season's first two rehearsals; complete a Membership Application form; and meet with the Artistic Director and accompanist for a vocal audition and interview. Auditions help the Artistic Director in voice placement and in maintaining the general vocal quality of the group. At your audition, you may be tested in sight reading music, vocal range, vocal health and tone, and you may perform a short prepared piece.
The Chorale rehearses on Monday evenings, 7:30-9:45 p.m. in Decker Hall at 665 Avery Road [map] at Pilgrim Place. Additional Saturday morning workshop rehearsals may be scheduled as necessary throughout the season. A full year schedule is distributed in the summer, with three or four concerts presented each season. It is expected that all singers will commit to performing in all scheduled concerts.
