Auditions for All Voices SATB

If you have what it takes, Cantigas is looking for YOU!

Do you love choral music, have previous choral experience and some sight singing skills? Look no further, we want to meet you.  Auditions for the 2012-2013 Season will be held on August 20, 21 and 22. 

What Cantigas can offer you: a unique opportunity to learn and perform an original choral repertoire including the premier of commissioned pieces as well as music that is less widely known in the United States. This is not your run of the mill choir, but a highly motivated, multicultural singing ensemble that enjoys singing a diverse repertoire and having fun times together. 

Auditions

What you will need to do on audition day: sing a prepared song of your choosing, go through a sight singing exercise and have a short interview with the artistic director.  Schedule your audition!
