The Cape Breton Chorale turns 49 this year! The 2022-2023 season will begin Thursday September 8, 2022 and continue until mid-May 2023*

We welcome auditions from singers of any experience level who find that they fit most of the following criteria:

• Some experience singing vocal harmony, either in choral settings or in productions.
• Understanding of some basics of vocal technique or demonstrated vocal confidence in
your audition performance.
• Openness to learning different styles of music in an ensemble setting.

Important assets to the Chorale include:

• Commitment to rehearsals and performance schedules.
• Willingness to study and learn concert music outside of rehearsal – independently or with
rehearsal aids.
• Openness to learning new skills and expanding upon existing skills (vocal, aural, rhythm,
reading, movement).

For your Cape Breton Chorale audition:

• We'll send you a short choral excerpt to learn in advance of the audition.
• Please bring one short solo piece to sing for us in any comfortable style.
• An accompanist will be provided, or you may bring your own accompanist.
• We will work with you in reading a passage of music, and test your aural skills. We will also check your range with some simple vocal patterns

Auditions are in Sydney, NS on Wednesday August 31 and Thursday September 1, 2022.

Please contact us to arrange an audition!
