ALL students, regardless of major or class year, are welcome to audition for a choral ensemble! When audition week arrives, sign up for one of the audition times on the Choral Studies bulletin board located on the first floor in the Dalton Center. Please sign up for the earliest available time to ensure that there are enough spaces for all singers. Information about the ensembles, rehearsal times, and the yearly concert schedule will be available next to the sign-up sheet. Please familiarize yourself with the schedule, particularly concert dates and times, to avoid scheduling conflicts. Auditions are generally held in room 1116 (Rehearsal Room A – Choral) or the Recital Hall of the Dalton Center. In the spring semester, they are held in 1720 (Dr. Adams' office).
