Musica Orbium is always interested in new members who share our love of high calibre, non-traditional choral programming. We present two major concerts each season and have a short rehearsal schedule before each one. Rehearsals focus on interpretation and musical expression, which requires all singers to prepare their parts independently in advance. Given the short rehearsal schedule, regular attendance is essential for the high level of excellence that we strive for.
Rehearsals take place at CAM, 1210 Sherbrooke Street East, on Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Auditions are held annually in late August or early September, although it is possible to schedule individual auditions at any time.
For your audition, you must prepare a short song of your choice—an aria, popular song, folk song, hymn, etc. (either a cappella or with piano accompaniment). The audition will also involve sight reading of a selection of different choral pieces, as well as specific vocal tests of your range, timbre and intonation.
