We’re glad to hear of your interest in auditioning for a choir in the Joint Music Program.
Regular auditions for Fall 2018 will be held the weekend of August 31-September 3. However, if you are a continuing Claremont Colleges student and wish to audition in April, please email the choral director, Prof. Kamm.
A successful audition is required to sing in the choirs. One audition suffices for both choirs. Auditions are held every fall during orientation week for incoming and new students. Auditions for the spring semester are held around the time of pre-registration through the first week of classes in the spring semester; contact Prof. Kamm at the email address above to arrange an audition. Once a singer is in a choir, they may continue without interruption each semester without reauditioning.
Auditions consist of vocalizing, singing a familiar tune a cappella (such as My Country ‘Tis of Thee, Amazing Grace, or Happy Birthday), an exercise in pitch repetition, and a little sight singing.
Spring Semester 2018, The Claremont Concert Choir regularly rehearses Mondays and Wednesdays throughout each semester, 5:30-6:45 p.m. The Claremont Treble Singers rehearses Mondays and Wednesdays 4:15-5:25 p.m.
For more information about auditions, you may email the choral director, Prof. Kamm. (ckamm at scrippscollege dot edu)
