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, and concentrated in the two weeks prior to each major performance. Given our efficient and performance-oriented rehearsal schedule, a commitment to near-perfect attendance 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.
September 2019: Substitute positions are still available in each section for performances beginning in January 2020. A season 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. Audition slots are now available only by appointment. Get in touch!
Three of our singers talk about how Chronos fits into their lives, and about the audition process.
