The Harford Choral Society welcomes new singers.
New members will encounter a welcoming atmosphere. The director provides a creative repertoire as well as encouraging and challenging rehearsal sessions. Rehearsals provide a balance to the workaday world by easing the burden of stressful days and lightening the hearts of those who participate. Rehearsals are enjoyable, filled with good humor and balanced by laser-like work in our process of making music. Participants depart from rehearsal vocally invigorated and refreshed. The Harford Choral Society has openings for all voice parts. To schedule an audition with the director, complete an email request below.
Rehearsals for Fall 2018 semester begin Monday, August 27, 2018.
Singers need not be trained vocalists, but are expected to be able to read music, and should be prepared for the following audition elements:
- a short prepared piece, such as an art song or aria, a hymn melody or other musical passage consistent with standard choral repertory
- sight-reading of an extract from a choral score
The Director holds auditions on Tuesday evenings prior to the regular 7:00 p.m. rehearsal time. Auditions for the winter concert begin September 5, 2017 through the end of the month. Exceptions can be made for auditions scheduled later.
We present two full concerts per season,as well as occasional smaller-scale runout performances. Recent repertory has included Handel's Messiah, Rutter's Gloria, Gabrieli's In ecclesiis, Mozart's Requiem, masses by Haydn, and Orff's Carmina burana as well as numerous smaller-scale pieces ranging from the 16th century to commissioned works.
