The Audition

If you are interested in auditioning please complete the form above 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

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.

Leadership Recruiter

In order to maintain a strong and committed Presidency and Board of Directors despite normal attrition, the Leadership Recruiter continually identifies possible new members of the leadership team.

The Leadership Recruiter works with the Presidency and Board of Directors to receive a comprehensive list of volunteers needed, writes job descriptions for each open position and actively advertises through the website, social media, through the Symphony & Chorus membership and other channels the available positions.

The Leadership Recruiter then acts as the first line of vetting with the candidates to assess their fit for the needs of the ensemble and directs candidates to the appropriate Presidency or Board member for further follow-up.

The Leadership Recruiter should possess a knack for detail orientation and people skills.

The Leadership Recruiter is an active advocate for a well-staffed organization and helps to drive staffing needs to ensure that good people are effectively deployed, thus enabling the success of the organization.
