Auditions

When are auditions?

Auditions for the 2018/2019 season will be held on August 28, 6:30-7:30pm.

Where can I audition for the Hagerstown Choral Arts?

Auditions are held at the Hagerstown Church of the Brethren at the corner of East Washington Street and South Mulberry Street in Hagerstown.

How are auditions conducted?

Our auditions are relaxed and performed in front of the director and a board member. Preseason auditions will be held in a non-threatening environment on a first come first serve basis. Singers will be led through a series of warm up exercises and then asked to sing a hymn of the director’s choosing. Although not all auditioning singers will be invited to join, our auditions are gentle and an excellent first audition experience. The only failure is in not trying! Male voice parts are especially encouraged to try out.
