Sing with ACS:

audition information

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Alexandria Choral Society. 

We are looking for singers to join us for our 50th season in 2019-20! The audition process involves vocalization and aural acuity drills, and sight-singing. Singers should also be prepared to perform (a cappella) a simple tune that showcases their vocal beauty and range (such as The Star-Spangled Banner or Amazing Grace).

 

Alexandria Choral Society rehearses on Tuesday evenings from August through May at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Alexandria, with four concerts throughout the season.


Please click the link below and fill out the short form to provide us with a little background information about yourself.
The information you provide here regarding your experience will be made available to the Artistic Director for your audition.

REHEARSALS AND DUES

 

Regular rehearsals take place at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, unless otherwise noted or announced. You may not miss more than two of the rehearsals and the dress rehearsal for any given concert in order to sing in the concert. If you miss a rehearsal, please speak to another singer from your section prior to the start of the next rehearsal to get any markings or notations.

 

Dues for the season are $300, and are to be paid by the first rehearsal by check, cash, or credit card. This includes the cost of music. 

 

COMMUNICATION

 

Alexandria Choral Society's email newsletter “Tempo” is the primary means of distributing information to members.

 

Use our Facebook group page as a platform for sharing choir news and other events with your family and friends.

 

PRO CORO ALEXANDRIA

 

Pro Coro Alexandria (PCA) is a chamber ensemble chosen from members of ACS. PCA performs at ACS concerts, as well as at additional performances throughout the season. Information about auditions, rehearsals, and additional performances will be communicated at rehearsals and via email.

 

SINGER INVOLVEMENT

 

Alexandria Choral Society is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. Membership dues and concert ticket sales cover only a portion of our operating expenses. In order to operate as we do, we need to raise a considerable amount of additional money from grants, fundraising activities, and donations. Each member’s involvement is needed, expected, and greatly appreciated! 

 

Involvement can include:

  • Promoting concert ticket sales.

  • Getting involved with our Silent Auction(s). 

  • Participating in our various community involvement events. 

  • Promoting and participating in our annual Spring2ACTion fundraising event.

  • Helping with the set-up and clean-up at each concert.
