Auditions

Auditions for new chorale singers are held during the first two weeks of the season as well as periodically throughout the season. The ability to read music or the possession of previous choral experience is always a plus, but not a requirement. Rehearsal tracks will be made for every part of every song in our repertoire, so singers with good ears can also pick up their parts by listening.  If you are interested in creating music with other passionate singers, come join us.  Please contact Artistic Director Brigitte Bellavoine by email at westminsterchorale@gmail.com to set up an appointment, or simply show up at our first rehearsal and come introduce yourself.
