Auditions for the 2012-2013 Chamber Singers will be held August 21-23, 2012. Please come prepared to sing two contrasting pieces that show off your vocal range.
Rehearsals are M-TH 4:00pm - 5:20pm. This is a year long commitment.

The Westminster College Chamber Orchestra is now auditioning for Spring Semester 2013. We have a particular need for strings, but all instruments are welcome to audition. You will be asked to perform the following in your audition: 1) One major scale of your choice, three octaves if possible (memorized); 2) one minor scale of your choice, two octaves (memorized); 3) a prepared solo piece that represents your best playing. Please bring an extra photocopy of the score of your prepared piece; 4) sight reading of excerpts from the orchestral repertoire.
Auditions will be held on Monday, January 7, 2013, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the Jewett Center Rehearsal Room, or by appointment prior to that time. To reserve an audition time and for directions, please contact Dr. Brandon Derfler at 801.832.2441 or email@example.com.
Placement in the orchestra is contingent upon need for a particular instrument (enrolled Westminster College students are given first priority) and upon the audition results.
Audition results will be made known by January 8, 2013.Auditions do determine seating; however, we do not seat in rank order from top to bottom. Sections are balanced for strength and seating rotation is possible throughout the season.
Friday, August 24 from 9am - 12pm in the EEJC rehearsal room. If you are unable to attend auditions on Friday, come the following Friday, September 2 at the same time. Work with the acclaimed jazz musician David Halliday and get ensemble experience.
