Hartford Chorale, the region’s principal symphonic chorus, generally holds auditions 2-3 times per year. Individual auditions last about 15 minutes and are held at St. James’s Episcopal Church, 1018 Farmington Avenue, West Hartford. An accompanist is provided.
We are looking to welcome qualified singers – all voice parts – who can accurately and independently prepare music, read music well, and commit to the required number of rehearsals and concerts during our multi-concert season. Interested candidates should have choral experience and must provide a letter of recommendation from a conductor or teacher who can speak to the candidate’s experience in choral singing. Candidates are provided with specific musical excerpts to prepare (see below). Other components of the audition include some vocalizing to identify range and timbre; short, melodic fragments to be repeated by memory; and brief tests of sight-reading ability and learning speed.
