Auditions for the 2017-2018 Chamber Chorale have concluded, and personnel is set for the current academic year (see our members page). Auditions for the 2018-2019 Chorale will take place during New Student Orientation and the first three days of fall term 2018. Online audition signups will open on 1 September 2018.
The Chamber Chorale holds auditions once a year and is open to all Stanford students: undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral fellows. In order to maintain the best possible combination of voices, the entire ensemble is re-auditioned every year. Preliminary auditions consist of vocalizing (with piano support) to determine range and evaluate vowel formation, pitch and rhythm memory exercises, sight singing, and a solo song. Callback auditions consist of hearing all finalists in different voice combinations to determine the best ensemble. Members from the previous year who would like to be considered once again for the ensemble must re-audition.
The Stanford Chamber Chorale rehearses twice a week: Mondays from 12:15-1:15 P.M. and Thursdays from 7:00-9:30 P.M.
