New Century Chorale holds auditions twice yearly. Please check back for our Spring 2016 audition schedule or contact us to set up an individual time. Auditions take place at St. Christopher Episcopal Church, 9020 South Saginaw Road, Grand Blanc, Michigan.
Auditions consist of a variety of vocal exercises and singing sections of familiar choral selections. Additionally, several NCC members are on hand to answer questions.
Other than voice quality and sight-reading ability, the only other requirements are that you are at least 18 years old; possess an enthusiasm for singing and a willingness to commit to the general requirements for rehearsals and performances. While there are some financial commitments related to dues and proper attire, the Chorale will work with anyone who qualifies through the auditions to ensure these costs do not become a burden.
NCC rehearses on Mondays from 7:00 p.m. till 9:00 p.m., beginning the first Monday after Labor Day and continuing through the final concert in May, excepting those that fall during holidays. Concerts include A Harvest of Song in November, Yuletide Festival in December and a spring concert held in May. Additional performances may be added, with the agreement of the chorale members.
Every attempt will be made to meet the schedules of those interested. Anyone wishing to schedule an audition is asked to Email Us. Please provide your name, voice part (if known), contact information (phone and email) and availability.
