Chronos Vocal Ensemble is always seeking additional singers, and adults of any age with a high level of musicianship, strong individual vocal technique and versatility, and a desire to be challenged in an ensemble environment.
It is expected that Chronos singers will invest time in their musicianship and vocal ability through individual training, and that repertoire will be prepared prior to and between rehearsals as necessary.
The choir rehearses regularly throughout the length of the choral season, primarily on weekends, concentrated primarily in the two weeks prior to each major performance. A commitment to near-perfect attendance within our performance-oriented rehearsal schedule is required.
Interview/auditions for qualified singers will include a brief interview, some vocalises, singing one’s own part on a short prepared piece, some sight-singing, and working a little with conductor Jordan Van Biert. Preparation of an aria or any solo repertoire is not required.
Chronos is looking for both full-time and substitute singers for the 2018-2019 Season. A tentative schedule is available upon request. Please contact us, share some information about your choral/vocal experience and voice type, and we will be in touch regarding an audition time. As of fall 2018, full-time positions are still available in alto, tenor and bass, with substitute positions available in all sections; auditions are arranged individually by appointment.
