The Choruses hold auditions throughout the year for singing members. At the beginning of each concert period, the Chorus accepts new singing members. Singers are selected based on a vocal interview. The interview focuses on ability to sing on pitch and to blend within the assigned section and the chorus as a whole. Members must be able to attend weekly rehearsals on Monday (Men) nights from 7-9 pm at Imperial Plaza in Richmond’s North Side. Members also give a yearly financial contribution.
Prospective members are always welcome to attend a rehearsal; it will provide a chance to meet some of the members, to see how rehearsals are run, and to get a feel for singing with the chorus before an audition. Members must be 18 years or older by the date of the first rehearsal in order to sing with the chorus.
Our season runs from early September to early June, and includes 2 major public performances/appearances and approximately 10 other performances for public and private organizations.
