Congratulations to all who auditioned for the Chamber Choir to perform at Washington National Cathedral in April. Please note the following rehearsals to prepare the music for the Winter Concert.

We are excited about the great sound of this group and the experience we will share together in Washington, DC!

Auditions for solos will be held after school on Tuesday, November 29 in the main choir room.

An accompanist will be provided for the audition as needed.

General Guidelines

Solos on the Bella Notte Dinner should use an accompaniment track. These will need to be downloaded audio files, not web links (youtube) to a track. You should audition with this track.

Any solo that is featured on the Winter Concert will need to use live piano accompaniment. You should provide sheet music for your solo at the audition and sing with the live accompanist should you wish to be considered for the Winter Concert. Check sites like "musicnotes" and "sheetmusicplus" to see if there is sheet music available for your song.

Please sign-up for an audition time HERE and indicate what song you will audition on. Please reference this list as you make your song selections as we will not feature the same song more than once. A list of music already being performed on the concert will be available soon and should also be avoided.

Music may be in any style/genre for this performance.
