Auditions signups for for the 2023-2024 Chamber Chorale and all Department of Music choral ensembles are now live and can be accessed here:
The Chorale holds auditions once a year during New Student Orientation and during the first week of fall quarter. This fall, auditions will take plce Friday, 22 September through Wednesday, 27 September. Callback auditions for the Chorale take place Thursday, 28 September.
Membership is open to all Stanford students: undergraduate and graduate. In order to maintain the optimal combination of voices, the entire ensemble is re-auditioned each fall. 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.
