Auditions are scheduled with the Artistic Director.

They take place after our Open Rehearsal at First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington; 630 Massachusetts Ave; Arlington, MA at the beginning of each semester - September and January. (The building is fully accessible. The location is served by public transit - see location page)

Our  process is friendly and low stress. Auditions take approximately 15 minutes and consist of vocalization, pitch-matching, and sight-reading exercises. Singers are asked to prepare a song of their choice to demonstrate vocal quality, technique, and musicality. This song need not be a formal aria or art song: it can be a simple hymn or folk song. Please note that this song will be performed without accompaniment as our accompanist will not be present.

Auditionees will be invited to sing in a rehearsal with the group. Invitations for membership will be extended based on the results of both the audition and rehearsal.
