Chamber Singers Hold Auditions

The NIH Chamber Singers, a group of 15-20 singers who perform mostly a cappella pieces from a wide range of musical styles, will hold auditions at 5:30 p.m. on two Tuesdays—Aug. 27 and Sept. 3—at a private residence off Cedar Lane near the NIH campus. For the upcoming fall season, there is one opening for a baritone/bass.

The season runs through the academic year, from September through May, and each “semester” culminates with a series of three or more performances, one series in December and one in May. Rehearsals take place weekly on Tuesday evenings during the season (5:30-7 p.m.).

Three-part audition consists of singing: in a quartet for evaluation of sight-reading and part-singing ability, scales to help determine appropriate vocal range and a solo of your choice, unaccompanied.
