Thursday evening, January 4, 2018
The Eugene Concert Choir continues the 2017-2018 season at the Hult Center with the Mozart Grand Mass in C Minor on February 25, and a fun Bollywood themed show to end the season on April 28, 2018. The Eugene Vocal Arts program, Something Old, New & Blue will be presented in UO’s Beall Concert Hall on April 6, 2018.
Auditions will be at Emmaus Lutheran Church (corner of 18th & Polk) in Eugene.
Please contact the choir office at 541-687-6865 or
firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private audition.
The Concert Choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings, and Eugene Vocal Arts rehearses on Monday evenings, from September through May.
For a choir audition, the following is required:
1. Please prepare a solo song that shows your voice to best advantage. Classical repertoire is preferred, but any song of your choosing is acceptable. Please bring music for the accompanist. We will provide the accompanist. If you do not have a song at your audition, you will be asked to sing the “Star Spangled Banner.”
2. You will be asked to sing scales to demonstrate your range.
3. There is a requirement that you have some sight reading ability. Sight reading will be offered in two ways. First, you will be given single lines of music with a starting pitch and key, and you will sing these lines on your own. Second, you will be asked to sight sing your voice-part in a four-part choral piece while the other parts are being played.
4. For tonal memory, several examples will be played on the piano and you will be asked to sing back what you hear.
Hear from ECC vocalist Marissa Robb on why she loves the choir and how vocal music is an essential part of her life.
