Process & requirements

Do you have a high level of musicianship, strong vocal technique, and versatility?

The choir rehearses regularly throughout the the choral season, and under normal circumstances, concentrated in the two weeks prior to each major performance. Given our efficient, performance-oriented rehearsal schedule, a commitment to near-perfect attendance is required.

Chronos singers are expected to invest time in their musicianship and vocal ability through individual training, and to prepare repertoire before and between rehearsals as necessary.

Fall 2020: We are arranging both in-person auditions (with lots of precautions) and digital auditions if preferred, for interested singers. 

Interviews/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.

The 2020-21 Season will be an unusual one with many challenges, but also opportunities to develop skills, enjoy music-making and connect with audiences in new ways. Do contact us if you’d like to learn more!

Three of our singers talk about how Chronos fits into their lives, and about the audition process.
