Auditions consist of the following:

  2. Pitch-memory exercises
  3. Sight-reading excerpt
  4. Prepared piece of your choosing (aria, art song, hymn, etc.) - Please bring a copy for the provided accompanist 

Details:
Auditions, rehearsals, and concerts are held at The Foundry United Methodist Church, 8350 Jones Road, Houston, 77065 about ½ mile north of Highway 290. Regular rehearsals are held every Monday evening from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM, unless announced otherwise. Members are expected to attend all rehearsals unless extenuating circumstances arise. Additionally, there may be dress, technical, orchestra and/or sectional rehearsals called before a performance in order to fine-tune the concert. Auditions will be performed in front of an audition panel, including the artistic director and section directors.
