St. Cecilia Chamber Choir will hold auditions for all voice parts. St. Cecilia Chamber Choir is an auditioned community chorus that rehearses Wednesday evenings at St. Andrew’s Church in Newcastle.
The group will resume rehearsals on Wednesday, Jan. 16 in preparation for concerts on May 4 and 5. The concerts will feature choral favorites such as Gustav Holst’s “6 Choral Folksongs,” Op. 36; Morten Lauridsen’s exquisite setting of the Rainer Maria Rilke poem “Dirait-on”; works by Ned Rorem; and more.
Sopranos and altos should be able to sing with a straight tone and all singers should have a finely tuned ear and be eager for a challenge. Practice materials are provided for learning music at home.
