The Allentown Symphony Chorus, under the direction of Chorus Master, Eduardo Azzati, is seeking singers to join us for our Spring 2024 performance with the Allentown Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony Chorus is a professional level volunteer ensemble. The commitment is only six weeks with additional rehearsals during concert week.
For our Spring 2024 concert, we will be performing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.
The Allentown Symphony Chorus will be comprised of approximately 50 voices. All singers interested in becoming part of the ASC must take part in a short audition, which includes singing the provided excerpt and sight reading. Honorarium positions for a Scholarship Quartet will be available to local college students majoring in a vocal music degree. Any new singers auditioning for an honorarium position must also prepare a solo piece for their audition. The solo should be an aria or art song of five minutes or less.
Our final audition date for this season will take place inside the Rodale Room of Miller Symphony Hall on Thursday, JANUARY 25, 2024 from 7:00-9:30 pm.
Sign up for an audition time and download the audition excerpt below.
Rehearsals are Thursday evenings from 7-9:30pm beginning Thursday, February 29, 2024, with additional weekday rehearsals the week leading up to the performances. For a complete rehearsal and performance schedule, visit millersymphonyhall.org/symphony/about/chorus.
