AUDITION PROCEDURE

THE AUDITION

If you are interested in auditioning please complete the form below and we will contact you for a time and place to audition.  Our friendly, no pressure audition process includes the following:

  • Sing without accompaniment a hymn or prepared solo
  • Sight singing / tonal memory evaluation
  • Sing simple scales to establish vocal range

THE AUDITION COMMITTEE & RESULTS

Judges are usually comprised of experienced choral conductors, assistant conductors, and section leaders.  Sometimes auditions are audio-recorded so that final review can be made by the Music Director.

While the results of an audition are confidential, not being accepted into Ensign is not an indication of your abilities.  Often, space is not available for your vocal part.  In fact, female voices are encouraged to bring a male counterpart voice to audition to ensure better available balance.
