Auditions

The Cascadian Chorale holds auditions year-round. If you are interesting in auditioning, please read this page and submit the form below. Questions can be addressed to auditions@cascadianchorale.org.

The Cascadian Chorale affords challenges even to the experienced singer. Although our members' level of expertise is generally high, we still present an opportunity to less experienced singers who are willing to work independently. It is a goal of the Chorale to welcome singers who are dedicated to the joy of making music and to help them to develop artistically. The new singer will find the Chorale to be a warm and supportive community. Our membership spans a wide age range, from recent graduates to retirees. We have frequent post-rehearsal social gatherings as well as post-concert parties. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings in Factoria (south Bellevue).

Auditions take approximately twenty minutes per person. As a candidate, you should be prepared to:

  • Demonstrate your vocal range;
  • Demonstrate your aural memory and basic sight-singing skills;
  • Prepare Ravenscroft’s There were three ravens (download), such that you can sing your part with basic harmonic support being supplied on piano;
  • Prepare the first two pages of the “Kyrie eleison” section from Mozart’s Requiem (download), such that you can sing your part unaccompanied.

You'll need the free Adobe Reader (download) to view the scores above.
