We Welcome Interested Singers To Join Us
Grace Chorale of Brooklyn adds new voices to the chorus each year. Our informal auditions take place in September and January prior to the concert seasons. We welcome singers with a passion for choral harmony.
Nominal sight reading always helps, but good pitch and a good ear are the most important!
We are always looking particularly for bass, baritone, and tenor voices, but sopranos and altos are welcome as well. No special preparation is needed for the audition.
We take our singing seriously, but do so in a relaxed, collegial, and playful atmosphere. Join us!
If you would like to audition, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-707-1411 or 917-450-8172. Auditions take place at our rehearsal site, which is 254 Hicks Street, and is accessible by subways 2, 3, 4, 5, R and M.
Rehearsals are held at 254 Hicks Street, Brooklyn Heights (at Grace Church) on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 with one 15 minute break with refreshments. For rehearsals to run smoothly and be productive, it is important for all members to arrive on time.
The cost of dues is $136 per semester (each season comprises two semesters, fall and spring) which includes the purchase of the musical scores and three tickets for guests. Dues should be paid by October 15th for the fall semester, and by February 15th for the spring semester.
GETTING THE WORK DONE
A lot goes on behind the scenes to make rehearsals and concerts a success. Everyone is asked to do his and her part in making the organization successful, creative, and fun. There is no paid administrative staff, so we will on occasion ask chorus members to contribute their unique expertise and time as needed.
