Cantilena holds open auditions the first three Mondays in September
and January. Members generally have prior choral experience and
either some sight-reading ability or a very good ear. If you are
interested in auditioning, we ask that you come to one of the
first three rehearsals of the term, sing with us and then stay
afterward for a brief audition with our music director and audition
committee (the rehearsal will end early to allow time for the
auditions). There is no need to reserve a spot, and no preparation
is required. The audition consists of vocal exercises and tone
matching, followed by having you sing a familiar tune of our choosing.
Cantilena rehearses each Monday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00
p.m. at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Arlington
Center. The fall season runs from the first Monday after Labor
Day to the concert date. The spring season runs from the first
Monday after New Year's Day to the concert date. Rehearsals are
held on all Monday holidays, including Columbus Day and Patriot's
Directions can be found here. For
more information, or if you have questions, please email us
firstname.lastname@example.org or call Maureen at 781-938-5825.
