Audition for the West Village Chorale!
2018-2019 Season Auditions
Auditions take place at Judson Memorial Church.
Would you like to sing an extraordinarily beautiful range of works under the baton of an inspired teacher and conductor?
Do you want to be part of a group in which you make great music, make great new friends—and make a real difference?
Then come sing with the West Village Chorale!
We are a highly participatory choir, composed of experienced volunteer singers with strong sight reading ability, excellent vocal technique, the capacity to blend—and the willingness to contribute their other diverse gifts (photography, graphic design, website design, fundraising skills, culinary artistry) towards the success of our work. We keep our membership to around 70 people, so every voice and every personality counts. And we are always looking for new voices and new talents to add to our mix!
Beyond the two-or three-concert cycles of a typical choir, we run typically two fundraisers per season, as well as our series of Summer Sings and our holiday events—an open sing of Handel’s Messiah and a caroling walk that regularly sends hundreds of enthusiastic singers around the streets of our West Village neighborhood. And there are always other opportunities that present itself, because, to quote Hamilton, we sing in “the greatest city in the world!” The past couple seasons in particular have included some fun “extras”—from backing up Patti LuPone (yes, that Patti LuPone) and indie rock band Sky-Pony in October 2016, to singing at weddings, holiday parties and charity benefits, to performing in San Francisco in May 2017 with our former director Michael Conley’s premiere of his Appalachian Requiem. And we’re fresh off our concert tour of Maine and Canada this July! We’ve had a blast and hope you’ll consider joining us!
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:45 pm at Judson Memorial Church, on Washington Square South, in the beautiful Greenwich Village section of Manhattan.
