Auditions for 2017–18 Season

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for Chicago Choral Artists. Prior to scheduling an audition, please download the audition materials HERE.

Audition Process

Please submit your choral or vocal resume. You can submit a resume as a Microsoft Word or PDF document. Please indicate clearly which voice part you sing most comfortably, and your choral/vocal experiences with the names of conductors/directors. Please send resumes to ccacostello@gmail.com.

Once the Artistic Director has had the opportunity to review resumes, you may be invited to an initial audition which will include the following:

  • Art song (any language). Please do not prepare operatic arias, popular songs, jazz, or Broadway.
  • Sight-reading.
  • Two choral excerpts (from the downloadable packet).
  • Vocalizations.

Candidates will then be selected for a secondary group callback audition.

Further Information

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 7:15–9:45 p.m., with occasional additional rehearsals (see schedule for details). Artists receive a stipend. It is preferable that all singers have a professional or collegiate choral experience on their resume. All auditions and rehearsals will be at Grace Lutheran Church and School, 7300 Division Street, River Forest, Illinois. Please enter at the main entrance (glass doors) on Bonnie Brae.
