The chorus welcomes singers without regard to religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
Auditions test your voice quality and range, and your ability to stay on pitch. While the ability to read music is important, the ability to read it well is not. The audition process takes from 15 to 20 minutes. You do not need to prepare a song for the audition.
To schedule an audition, please submit an “Audition Request” form on this website. Provide your name, describe your singing experience, any formal training you might have had (formal training is not a requirement), and also describe any prior affiliation you might have had with the Seattle Peace Chorus. Give your phone numbers and email address so that Pat can contact you.
The chorus rehearses for two concerts each season, one in the fall and one in the spring.
Rehearsals are held Monday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Wallingford District. Extra Saturday rehearsals, usually from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., are scheduled as needed. In the week preceding a concert, two or three evening rehearsals may be scheduled.
Rehearsals run from September through November and January through May.
Anyone is welcome to drop in on a Monday night rehearsal to get a sense of the chorus and preview the works in progress. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the rehearsal location.
