Audition Information

Members of The Festival Singers come from all parts of the community and enjoy “Sharing the Joy of Music” by participating in a traditional four part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) choral group. We perform all styles of music from Bach (the classics) to Broadway (show tunes as well as pop, folk and patriotic arrangements).

We present three major concerts each year. They are scheduled in December, March and June, and we also do several run-out concerts throughout the season for various civic and residential facilities. We have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City and sung the National Anthem for an Angels’ baseball game.

Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening between 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. starting the Tuesday after Labor Day and until the week before our last concert in June. We rehearse in the music room of St. John’s Episcopal Church and School in Rancho Santa Margarita, and are grateful for their support of our group by providing space for us. Visitors are welcome to attend any rehearsal to learn more about the group.

While formal auditions are not held, new singers are invited to join in September, January or late March. A short meeting will be held with the director to determine voice part and range.

Singers are expected to make a commitment to attend all rehearsals and performances and make a $25.00 monthly donation to the group. While not required for membership, the donation helps with concert and music expenses, and is a tax deductible expense to the extent allowed by law. The Festival Singers is a registered California non-profit organization. In addition there is a one time expense for concert attire.
