AUDITION

expectations

Having new people and personalities sing with us is always exciting. As you consider joining us in song, here are some important things for you to know about us:

  • Anyone and everyone may audition, although previous choral experience is usually a prerequisite for membership.
  • We operate under the "Mr. T Principle:" that no one is too old or too experienced to stop growing as a musician, and that every singer wants to be the best he or she can.
  • Mutual respect is of the utmost importance as we work together to address the needs of a specific piece, and as we work to improve our individual and collective singing skills.
  • Openness to constructive feedback is encouraged among all our singers.
  • We have a high standard of excellence because we want to be the best group we can possibly be.
  • Our previous director, Jay Stuckey, had this to say about membership in the DTC:

    "The Don Thompson Chorale exists 'to create beautiful choral music and to share it with as many people as possible.' To that end, we invite capable singers (preferably music readers with previous choral experience) to join us in this effort. We seek qualified, dedicated singers who wish to work together to learn and present music that is more demanding and challenging than what may be expected of a volunteer choir. Be aware that not every voice section is always open for membership, and not everyone who auditions will be guaranteed admission. Please contact us about scheduling an audition if you are interested in participating in this rewarding endeavor. It's a lot of work... but we believe it is worth the investment of time and energy."
