THE AUDITION PROCESS - Please call for information on the audition times for grades 1-12.
Adult Chorus Auditions will be Monday evening, August 26. Please call to reserve a time.

Auditions are held by Chorus Abilene’s artistic staff to assess musical skills in a relaxed and interactive few minutes. Youth auditioners should be prepared to sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and will be asked to participate in simple exercises and even "sing-a-longs" to identify skill level and appropriate potential placement in an ensemble. Adults should contact the office staff for specific audition requirements. 

Auditions are scheduled in May and August annually, though individual auditions may be scheduled throughout the season to accommodate for special circumstances. All choirs are open to new registration through audition.

Administrative staff is available to answer questions about rehearsal schedule, tuition, financial assistance, and international touring opportunities. For further information regarding Chorus Abilene’s audition process or to register for your 10 minute audition time, please contact the CA Office at 325-673-SING (7464).
