2017 Auditions

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Interested in a challenging and high-calibre choral experience in the company of other motivated and outgoing singers? We might have a place for you! Our members come from many backgrounds - singers, instrumentalists, students, parents, teachers, and other professions.

We are seeking singers age 18+ (completed high school as of September 2017) who are open to a range of musical experiences, with a particular interest in a cappella repertoire, and willing to commit to all rehearsals and uphold professional standards of performance. Formal vocal training is not required, but prior music experience, good vocal blend, and ability to read music are key assets.

  • Regular rehearsals take place every Sunday, 12:20 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Mary Queen of Peace Church, Torbay Road.
