North Iowa Choral Society is announcing auditions for the 2019-2020 performance season. Auditions will be held from 4:45 p.m.to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 15, in the North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) Vocal Music Room #172.
Solo and small group opportunities are available for the holiday concert scheduled for Sunday, December 15, 2019, in the North Iowa Area Community Auditorium. The choir is under the direction of Linda Ferjak.
In addition, NIACC offers credit hours for membership in the Choral Society for college students and continuing education credit for area vocal teachers who require continuing education accredited hours.
The ensemble, which is sponsored by NIACC, has been vocalizing and sharing beautiful music with North Iowa audiences since Fall 1994 when the ensemble was formed under the direction of Robert Davis. The ensemble performs sacred and secular music from various genres (classics, spirituals, musical theater, jazz, swing, blues, etc.) and has performed at Iowa Choral Directors Conventions, the Choral Symposium, KCMR Live Christmas, Waldorf Performing Arts Series, NIACC’s Candlelight Christmas and Holiday Pops, and in NIACC’s Performing Arts Series with Shirley Jones in 2002.
The ensemble is delighted for the new upcoming season to share music with our audience. If interested in an audition slot, please call or text Choral Society President, Julie Phillips, at 641-529-6039, to obtain a time to audition. Anyone auditioning should come prepared to sing a prepared piece or sing something as simple as My Country Tis of Thee and do a vocal range check. The Choral Society is especially looking to add tenors to the ensemble. An accompanist will be available, however, you may bring your own accompanist if that is preferred.
Come make music with us!
