Auditions

Auditions

Auditions for new singers are held during the first two weeks of the season as well as periodically throughout the season. The ability to read music, or having previous choral experience is always a plus but not a requirement. If you would like to learn these skills or already have them and are dedicated to creating music and the joy that singing with others brings come join us. Please contact us by email at jared@westminsterchorale.org to setup an appointment.

Rehearsal Schedule

Members of the Westminster Chorale rehearse once a week on Monday evenings. All rehearsals:

  • Are held at City of Westminster Senior Center in their Dining Hall. 
    8200 Westminster Blvd. Westminster CA 92683  (Google Maps)
  • Take place from 7:00pm-9:00pm each Monday. 
    Technical rehearsals are added the week of the performances and are listed on the season concert schedule. Additional sectional rehearsals may be scheduled as needed.
  • Begin promptly. 
    Chorale members are expected to arrive on time. Rehearsals are demanding and rewarding. Break times offer members the chance to chat and get to know new singers.
