Do I need to audition? Eventually. But we make it easy for you.
We find the best place for you to sit while you sing with us for a few weeks, and you discover whether you like the experience. Your section leader will informally get to know you and your voice. They will arrange some audition ice-breaker exercises so you'll know what to expect when you have your one-on-one with the Music Director. It's really not very daunting.
