Audition for St. Cecilia’s Chamber Choir

Fri, 01/04/2019 - 8:00am

The St. Cecilia Chamber Choir is holding auditions for all voice parts - now.

St. Cecilia is an auditioned community chorus that rehearses Wednesday evenings at St. Andrew’s Church in Newcastle. Sopranos and altos should be able to sing with a straight tone, and all singers should have a finely tuned ear and be eager for a challenge

The group will resume rehearsals on Jan. 16 in preparation for concerts on May 4 and 5. The concerts will feature choral favorites such as Gustav Holst’s “6 Choral Folksongs,” “Op.36,”  Morten Lauridsen’s exquisite setting of the Rainer Maria Rilke poem “Dirait-On,” works by Ned Rorem, and more!  Practice materials are provided for learning music at home.
