Auditions for 2022–23 Season

Chicago Choral Artists is holding auditions for its 2022–23 Season on May 3 and 6 from 6:00–9:00 p.m. each evening and May 7 from 1:00–4:00 p.m. Please read the information below to learn about the process of scheduling an audition.

Audition Process

Please submit your choral or vocal resume as a Microsoft Word or PDF document. Please indicate clearly which voice part you sing most comfortably, and your choral/vocal experiences with names of conductors/directors.

Inclusive diversity and equity are values of Chicago Choral Artists. We believe that choral music should be enjoyed by all people and encourage and embrace our collective differences. Historically, fine arts organizations have disproportionately bypassed marginalized people in society, including people of color and LGBTQ individuals. We believe that these communities are essential to our music making. We strongly encourage people from these communities or identities to submit their resumes for an audition. Our success will come from a chorus of many different voices.

Please send resumes to manager@chicagochoralartists.org.

Once the Artistic Director has had the opportunity to review resumes, you may be invited to an audition, which will include the following:

  • Art song (any language).

  • Sight-reading.

  • Two choral excerpts, available HERE.

Further Information

Rehearsals are generally on Tuesday evenings from 7:15–9:45 p.m., with occasional additional rehearsals. Artists receive an hourly stipend. It is preferable that all singers have a professional or collegiate choral experience on their resume. All auditions and Tuesday rehearsals will be at Grace Lutheran Church and School, 7300 Division Street, River Forest, Illinois. Please enter at the main entrance (glass doors) on Bonnie Brae.
