Spring Auditions – Bach Festival Choir!

June 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Rigorous Rehearsals. Serious Singers. Challenging Repertoire. Do YOU have what it takes? Sign up to sing with the best in Central Florida as part of the internationally-recognized Bach Festival Choir!

Bach Festival Society of Winter Park invites you to choir auditions on Tuesday, June 6 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. To request an audition time, complete the form located at http://www.bachchoirorlando.org and we will be in touch to schedule your time.

Candidates will be asked to sing scales, match pitch, and do a sight-reading exercise. In addition, choir hopefuls must prepare one song that is classical in nature—it can be a hymn—and bring an extra copy of the music for the accompanist. The Bach Festival Society’s Artistic Director and Conductor, Dr. John V. Sinclair, hears all auditions.

About Bach Festival Choir:
The auditioned all-volunteer Bach Festival Choir is the nucleus of the Bach Festival Society, with a membership of over 160 singers from all walks of life who share a love of great music. Many members of the Choir have music degrees or advanced musical training, serve as educators in the Central Florida area, or maintain active schedules as soloists in churches and other venues throughout the community. Others are simply brought to the choir by their love of music. The choir is known internationally, and sang with the London Symphony Orchestra during two consecutive Florida residencies, in July 2007 and May 2009. The July 2007 performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 was a great success, with one reviewer noting that the “first-rate performance showed the Winter Park choir was every bit the equal of the world-class London Symphony Orchestra.” Carmina Burana, performed in May 2009, was equally well received.

Rehearsal Schedule
The Bach Festival choir rehearses weekly on Monday nights from 7:30pm to 9:30pm on the Rollins College campus. Additional sectional rehearsals and workshops are held throughout the performance season. The choir schedules several additional rehearsals with the Bach Festival Orchestra during the week prior to each performance and at other times as needed. Choir members are expected to commit to attend all rehearsals.
