Choir Auditions

The Joint Music Program choirs will audition new singers for the Fall 2024 semester.

We are auditioning all voice parts (subject to openings in each part, but especially tenors) for the Claremont Concert Choir (MUS 173; MW 7:00-8:30 pm) and sopranos and altos for the Claremont Treble Singers (MUS 176; MW 5:30-6:45 pm).  Auditions will occur August 23-26, 2024.

To schedule an audition, please check back here in August.

An audition for the choirs takes about 10 minutes and consists of vocalizing, some pitch memory ear games, singing a short, familiar tune unaccompanied (like “Happy Birthday,” “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” “Amazing Grace, or another lyrical song of your choosing), and trying some sight singing.  No prepared piece is required beyond what is outlined above, although you may bring your own melodic piece to sing as the familiar tune.  Successful auditionees sing the familiar tune on key, and either read music or can repeat the pitch ear games well.

For more information, you may email the choral director, Prof. Kamm (ckamm@scrippscollege.edu or ckamm@hmc.edu).
