Auditions

AUDITION GUIDELINES FOR NEW MEMBERS

The Inland Master Chorale invites experienced singers age 18 and above to audition. The Chorale has developed standards to ensure quality performances of fine choral literature. Membership in the Chorale means that you have achieved a certain level of musicianship, which is determined by an audition conducted by our Artistic Director, Dr. Joseph Modica, and Assistant Director, Anna DeLeon. Auditions are held each August and January for new members. Existing members are required to re-audition every five years.

Auditions include:

  • Vocal Range: Vocalizing to determine vocal range and voice part classification.
  • Tonal Memory: Singing back a series of notes played on the piano.
  • Sight Reading: Singing your part in a choral selection while the accompanist plays the other parts on piano.
  • Prepared Piece: Please choose and prepare a song that most clearly demonstrates the quality and versatility of your voice. Acceptable pieces include opera, oratorio arias, an art song in any language, or a ballad from a standard Broadway musical. You may be asked to sing all or part of this piece, but it need not be memorized. An accompanist will be provided, so please bring an extra copy of your music.

Open rehearsals for prospective members are normally held at the first two rehearsals in August and January. We meet at Memorial Chapel at the University of Redlands. Parking is available directly behind the Chapel, off of Brockton Ave. Please arrive at 7pm to check in and pick up music.

Auditions for the 2020-21 season will be conducted virtually due to COVID19. Audition videos must be submitted by Friday, August 28. Contact Chair of Membership Kim Biddick for details:  909-633-8346 or auditions@inlandmasterchorale.org

Members are required to pay annual dues and purchase concert attire. To be eligible to sing a concert, no more than two rehearsals may be missed. Members are allowed to take a leave of absence for a maximum of one concert per season, otherwise they must re-audition.
