Nashville Symphony Chorus holding community auditions January 25

See also

Music City is full of talented singers and the Nashville Symphony is calling on you to audition for the Nashville Symphony Chorus on Saturday, January 25.

Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the Chorus performs regularly from the classical repertoire at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The chorus, directed by Kelly Corcoran, is an all-volunteer ensemble that performs twice each season with the Nashville Symphony as part of the Aegis Sciences Classical Series and also performs Handel's Messiah each December, as well as a concert of choral works in the spring.

To schedule an audition to be part of the classical Nashville Symphony Chorus, please contact Eddie Smith, Auditions Coordinator, at chorusauditions@nashvillesymphony.org.

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

Singers should prepare a solo selection (art song, solo from an oratorio, etc.) no more than 2-3 minutes in length. Each person will sing alone with piano accompaniment before the director. The director may ask about your previous experience and check your vocal range. Each singer may be asked to sight-read and/or sing some aural recall exercises. An accompanist will be provided; please bring a copy of your music for the accompanist.

Singers will be graded on pitch, accuracy and intonation; rhythmic accuracy; dynamic control, phrasing, expressiveness and style; diction and vowel production; and tone quality, resonance, freedom and control. Vocal range and the volume of your voice are less important factors than accuracy, musicality and consistency of tone. Rehearsals are held weekly on Monday nights from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
