Auditions are open now for the coming season, which begins on Tues., Sept 5 and runs through June 2024.
We have openings in all parts for our three-concert season. Interested singers are asked to submit a preliminary video of themselves singing a short song of their choice (anything you feel shows your voice at its best), which may be followed by an invitation to meet via Zoom with Artistic Director Cynthia Powell to determine music skills.
Submissions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The concert dates for next season are:
Sat., Dec 9, 2023, Sat., March 23, 2024, and Thurs., June 13, 2024
The Stonewall Chorale is an auditioned choir of about 50 voices. We are devoted to singing the great choral classics of the ages – from Medieval and Renaissance to Meredith Monk and Eric Whitacre. We love to sing and are committed to excellence…and we also have a lot of fun. Members pay $25 a month dues. You may sing for the entire season or by the concert.
Now is a great time to sing with the Stonewall Chorale, make new friends, explore beautiful music together and offer it back to the community!
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU PERFORM?
The Stonewall Chorale is committed to singing the great classical repertoire, but we also sing an eclectic array of music from all periods and styles.
WHEN DO YOU REHEARSE?
The Chorale rehearses on Tues. evenings in the Village from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
The Chorale typically holds one or two intensive rehearsals (which are usually 3.5 hours on a Sunday afternoon) are included in each concert prep period, as is a dress rehearsal before each performance. You will be notified well in advance of these sessions, and will be able to access the season schedule via your Chorus Connection calendar.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU PERFORM?
The Chorale usually performs three concerts a year, and smaller engagements from time to time.
HOW MUCH ARE CHORALE DUES?
The Chorale supports itself by member dues. The dues are $200 for the entire season (September – June) or $75 per concert period, or $25 a month, whichever works best for you. If paid in full at the start of the season you save $25!
Each Chorale member is required to sell 4 tickets per concert.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO PURCHASE AS A MEMBER?
Great news! You are not required to purchase a uniform or music — the concert attire is generally all black for formal concerts, and bright shirts with black pants for more casual appearances/pride events. PDF's of the music are supplied to you by the Chorale, and you may either read from a tablet device or print out for use in a (black, 3-ring) binder.
Note: The Stonewall Chorale welcomes members of and allies to the LGBTQ community and does not base membership on sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
