Auditions for New Members
Sep 27 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

The New World Chorale is holding auditions for new members in the alto, tenor, and bass sections.

Note: The soprano section currently is at full capacity, so we are not accepting new soprano members at this time.

Please prepare a short piece (no longer than 3 minutes) that showcases your voice. It can be a cappella or with piano accompaniment. You will also be asked to demonstrate range, sight-reading ability, and language and IPA facility.

To schedule an audition time slot, contact Amy DeRoche at amy.deroche@newworldchorale.org.

Please bring two copies of the piece you will be singing and a copy of your vocal CV that includes your contact information (email address, phone, mailing address). Come to the function hall on the lower level of the church to sign in.

Open Sing and 2019-20 Season Kickoff
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join NWC for an Open Sing and a kickoff to our exciting 2019-20 season. We will sing through Haydn’s Te Deum using a format similar to Summer Sings that happen in the area: a brief rehearsal to touch on a few tricky spots, then a run-through of the piece. In between rehearsing and the run-through, we will have a break for light refreshments and a brief presentation of the concert season.

The sing is open to all who are interested, not just NWC members. We’re suggesting that nonmembers make a $10 donation (and members can make a freewill donation if they are so moved) to help cover costs.

Please RSVP here so we’ll have an idea of how much food and drink to supply:
