Choir Auditions


Auditions 2014-2015

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.

Voice placement auditions for Concert Chorale, Women’s Chorus, and University Choir will take place August 28-29 (music majors) and September 2-4. If you are interested in participating in a UWM choir, sign up for a 10-minute slot to meet and sing briefly for the choral faculty. Sign-up sheets are located on the choral bulletin board in the Music Building across from MUS 165. Sign-up sheets will be posted August 22.

Music majors should bring a prepared piece to sing at their audition. Non-music majors are not required to prepare a solo (though prepared solos are welcome).

Students interested in Men’s Chorus may either sign up for an audition time or attend class on Tuesday, September 2 at 3 p.m. in MUS 280.

Students interested in Gospel Choir should attend rehearsal on Tuesday, September 2 at 7 p.m. in MUS 280.
