Spring Choral Auditions for 2019-2020

Auditions for current UW ensemble singers wishing to change or add choirs for the 2019-20 school year will take place on Friday, May 10, 2018, 9:30-1:30 in Rm 114 of the School of Music.  You can definitely sing in more than one choir at UW!

You may instead opt to audition in the fall, but you are encouraged to sing for us now if you are ready.  You don’t need to prepare a song, but if you have one you like, bring it.  We will vocalize you and learn a little bit about your voice type.  There is no sight-reading required for the spring auditions.

 Signing up is a two-step process! First, you will complete this audition form, then be sure to follow the link that will appear after you submit the form to select an audition time. We encourage you to sign up as early as possible!  Email Dr. Wyers (wyersg@uw.edu) with questions.

Meet the Choral Cohort

Every year, the Choral Music Department relies on the assistance and experience of the Graduate Choral Conducting Cohort. Under the leadership of Dr. Boers and Dr. Wyers, the cohort members direct University Singers, Men’s Glee, Women’s Chorus, and Recital Choir. They also act as Assistant Conductors for Chamber Singers and the University of Washington Chorale.
