General Information

 

The Shrewsbury Chorale generally performs three concerts per season. Please visit our Home Page and Past Performances to get an idea of our repertoire.

Membership in the Chorale is open to all who meet the audition requirements. Membership in the Chorale carries with it certain responsibilities. All members pay annual dues of $100 payable on or before Oct. 1. There is financial assistance available.  No one will be denied membership if payment of dues is a hardship. All members are expected to assist with fundraising, ticket sales, advertising, publicity, etc. Attendance requirements are enforced.

An annual music fee, determined by the Board of Governors, will be assessed each member to cover the cost of purchased and rental music during the season. When music cannot be rented or borrowed, Chorale members will be required to purchase their music. There is financial assistance available for music purchase as well.

We invite all interested singers to join us for our concerts!

Open Rehearsals & Audition Information
The Shrewsbury Chorale welcomes adult singers to audition for membership. The Shrewsbury Chorale performs music in various styles and periods from classical to modern. There are openings available in all voice parts.  Our next Open Rehearsals will be held Tuesdays January 17 & 24, 2017 at 7:45pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Monmouth County, 1475 West Front St, Lincroft. Auditions will be scheduled throughout the season, September through June, on Tuesdays at 7:30, or at the convenience of the conductor.

To audition, singers should have choral experience, sight-reading skills, and be able to attend Tuesday evening rehearsals.  Acceptance depends on meeting audition requirements and on the available openings in each voice section, as dictated by the need to achieve balance between sections.  The audition will be comprised of short exercises to access vocal quality, range and sight-reading ability. A prepared piece is acceptable but not required.

For more information or to arrange an audition please contact Joy More 732-962-2674.
