Guests and new members are always welcome!
If you enjoy #AcappellaXmas and are considering becoming a full-fledged member, here’s how that would work.
To join our chorus you do not need to read music or have a trained singing voice. You only need to be able to sing in tune. Ongoing training is provided in vocal, breathing and visual performance skills.
At your first rehearsal, you will be placed to determine what vocal part you are best suited to sing. In the barbershop genre, you will be either a Lead, which is the melody line, or Tenor, Baritone or Bass which are the harmony parts. After your voice placement, you will be given music and a temporary spot on the risers beside someone who sings the same part. The chorus will provide audio learning tracks. Over the next few weeks, you will have the opportunity to practice singing the audition song on the risers with the chorus and in smaller groups. Should you choose to audition, you will be asked to sing your part against the other four voice parts.
The audition process requires that you be able to carry a tune (i.e.stay in pitch) and be able to hold your tune against a harmony line. If you are not sure if you can do this, come out and give it a try! We are happy to help you out, and teach you along the way.
