Choir Auditions

Auditions Fall 2015

Membership in UWM choral ensembles is open to any UWM student. Becoming a member of one of our choirs can give you the opportunity to grow and develop as a musician, make new friends, and be part of one of UWM’s most exciting and popular student activities.

Interested students should sign up for a 10-minute voice placement audition when they arrive on campus in the fall.  Sign-up sheets will be posted on August 24 on the choral bulletin board in the Music Building (across from room MUS 165).  Various audition times will be available August 27-September 2.

Students auditioning for Concert Chorale, University Choir or Women’s Chorus should bring a piece to sing at their audition – this can be a prepared solo, a folk song, OR one of the following:  My Country ‘Tis of Thee, America the Beautiful, or Amazing Grace.

Students interested in Gospel Choir do not need to sign up for a 10-minute audition and should instead attend auditions on Tuesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. in MUS 280.
