Auditions

 

DC Area Singers Wanted

We hold open auditions for new members twice a year, in January and September. Our next set of guest and audition nights will be held on September 8th and 15th.  You need to attend only one.  If you haven’t already, please complete our Audition Inquiry/Application and make an appointment with our Membership VP’s by contacting them at [email protected].

Virtual Auditions:

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Singers have been meeting virtually since March and will continue online meetings until singing in person is determined to be safe.  Therefore, our guest and audition nights will be held on Zoom.

Updated Edit: If you plan to attend our Guest Night on September 8th, we still ask that you submit a pre-recorded audition by midnight Friday, September 4th to allow the panel the weekend to review all submissions. If you plan to attend our Guest Night on September 15th, we are able to extend the video submission deadline to midnight on Friday, September 11th. No further extensions will be granted for this audition cycle.

Instructions can be viewed HERE or saved to PDF HERE.

When You Arrive:

Using the Zoom link we provide, you will first meet with the Membership Team and other auditioners for a short orientation, including our plans for the coming year, and we’ll answer any questions you might have. You will then have an opportunity to participate in one of our online rehearsals, and also get to see us perform.

The Audition Interview:

After the Guest Night has concluded, each auditioner will then have a short one-on-one interview with our panel, who will have reviewed your video and application. The interviews will be conducted by the Director, Creative Director and Board President (or other Member designated by the Creative Team)

After Audition:

You will be notified by the Membership Team within a week of the close of the complete audition cycle as to whether or not you have been accepted as a member of the Singers.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our Membership Co-VPs at [email protected].
