Audition Information

The KCS is accepting new members in all sections for the 2023-24 season, subject to an audition. Some choral experience and the ability to follow a score will be considered an asset. Choristers are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances during the season, and to spend time working on repertoire between rehearsals.

​What To Expect:

Auditions begin on Tuesday September 5. ​Prospective members will be asked to prepare a short selection of music chosen by the Artistic Director – please click the link below to view the passage for this year. Candidates will also be asked to vocalize exercises to show their range and pitch recognition.
