Join us for an exciting season of inspired and dedicated singing!

Come sing the music of Bach, Mozart, and Handel, as well as some lesser-known gems, all performed with world-class period music instrumentalists and soloists.

Tenors and basses especially welcome, limited spaces available for soprano and alto.

Rehearsals

We rehearse Tuesdays 7-10 PM in San Francisco (with occasional weekend workshops). Here is our full 2018-19 Rehearsal and Concert Schedule.

What to Expect at Your Audition

Vocalizing

Using mostly familiar exercises, to discover: What is your comfortable and usable range? What voice part should you sing? What are your best vowels and what strategy can we use to improve the less-good ones? Is your breath working for you? Are there other adjustments we can make to increase the ease and health of your singing, and the flexibility and beauty of your tone?

Sight-reading

Recognizing that there is a wide range of reading ability there will be three, graduated sight-reading exercises and, for those who learn more by rote, an opportunity to demonstrate that skill.

Prepared music

New singers, please bring two copies of a prepared song or choral work. Simple is fine! A hymn, folk song, carol beautifully sung is preferable to something difficult which is not completely mastered.

Auditions take place on Wed. Aug. 22 and Wed. Aug. 29 (additional dates may be added as needed) at the Star of the Sea School Auditorium, 4420 Geary Boulevard (entrance on 8th Ave), San Francisco 94118.
