This season, the Susquehanna Chorale will celebrate their 40th Anniversary!

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING AUDITIONS FOR THE 2021/2022 SEASON!!

    

Interested adults (age 18 and older) are encouraged and invited to audition. 

Participation in the Susquehanna Chorale is determined by an online vocal submission to 

conductor, Linda L. Tedford.

For specific audition information, refer to the Audition Requirements section listed below.

Please read carefully before submitting an audition.

Rehearsals begin in August.  

Concert performances are scheduled for 

 December, May and August.  

For more information, contact Molly Masser, Administrator, at sc@susquehannachorale.org.  

Audition Requirements

- Previous singing experience is required.

- Completed online audition form (below)

- 2 prepared pieces and 1 of those in a foreign language.

- Sight singing will be a required part of the audition.

- Availability for 2021-22 rehearsals & performance dates

- You are encouraged to listen to/watch recordings of the Chorale before auditioning.

Video Submission Guidelines

Singers should perform two prepared pieces (one in a foreign language if possible) that demonstrate their vocal and performance ability (i.e. posture, expression, tone, and range). Submissions may be accompanied by a live accompanist, a previously recorded accompaniment track (with no vocals), or a cappella (not preferred).

Start your recording device and state:

- Your full name

- The title of the pieces you will perform

You may submit one video including  both songs, or a separate video for each selection. When your video audition is complete, upload it to YouTube, marking it as unlisted (click here for instructions), or to a cloud storage service (Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.). Submit the link(s) to the YouTube video(s) or shared file(s) in the space provided at the end of the online audition form (below).

The due date for submissions is June 25, with follow up, in person call backs to be scheduled in July.

Please use the highest quality recording equipment available to you. For best results, place your recording device on a stationary object, such as a tripod or table. Please do not tape a close-up; have your entire body (from head to toe) in the frame. Prior to recording, test that you are in focus and well-lit, and that your video is free from distracting

background noise.

If the Artistic Director is interested in hearing more from you after reviewing your video audition, she will be in touch to schedule a live video call (or in-person audition if/when it is safe to do so) including sight-singing and

ear-training exercises.
