Fall 2018 auditions for the WVU Chamber Singers will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, August 15 and 16. The audition will include learning a set piece as well as completing some short sight-reading, rhythm, and tonal memory exercises. For the set piece, please learn whichever part best suits your voice. If you are not familiar with Latin pronunciation, you do not need to learn the text. You are very welcome to sing on a neutral vowel of your choice and you will not be penalized in any way for not learning the text. During the audition, you will be asked to sing a section of the piece while additional voice parts will be played on piano. Please contact Dr. Kym Scott to receive a copy of the audition piece.

 

Rehearsals for Chamber Singers are Monday through Thursday from 1pm until 1:50pm. You will need to be available for all rehearsals so if you plan to audition, please make sure that your schedule allows for these rehearsals.

 

If you are going to be a freshman this coming school year, please make sure that the adviser that you work with on your schedule knows that you plan to audition for this ensemble.
