Auditions

Auditions for the upcoming 2017 – 2018 Season will be held during the first two weeks of May.

To arrange for an audition, please click on the link below and complete the registration form.

Auditions provide an opportunity to meet the director and learn more about the Chorus. While our standards are high, our process is friendly. Auditions are relaxed and informal.

Please arrive prepared to sing a song of your choice. We ask that you provide a copy of your music for our pianist.  It is preferred that you do not sing a Broadway-style selection as belting is not an accepted vocal technique in MGC. Healthy free vocal production, as well as excellent intonation and an ability to sing basic rhythms at sight are required. Additionally, you will be asked to perform pitch-matching exercises and demonstrate your sight-reading ability.

Your spirit, enthusiastic love of singing, strong commitment, and willingness to contribute to the greater good of our community and vision are also of the utmost importance.  We will continue to unite the voices of young women and make a difference throughout the greater New York area. 

In the upcoming 2017 – 2018 Season, the Chorus will be performing a full schedule including a November appearance at Carnegie Hall singing with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Zubin Mehta.

Rehearsals are 4:30 to 6:45 Tuesdays and one Saturday per month 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music. Additional rehearsals are occasionally added as needed.
