CLICK HERE FOR AUDITION FAQS

Membership in UWM choral ensembles is open to any UWM student by audition. Becoming a member of one of our choirs can give you the opportunity to grow and develop as a musician, to make new friends and to be part of one of UWM’s most exciting and popular student activities. Choir voice placements for the Fall 2013 semester are coming soon! Meet the choral faculty and sing an easy song for them during choral auditions that happen the first four days of classes!

Tuesday, January 21; 1pm-5pm
Wednesday, January 22; 11am-4pm
Thursday, January 23; 1pm-5pm

Sign up for a simple, five-minute voice placement hearing. This hearing is designed to let the UWM Choral Faculty meet you, hear your voice, and then place you in the optimal ensemble for your voice!

You can sign up for an audition time on the audition sheets hanging on the Choir Bulletin Board, located in the Music Building, first floor, across from room 159. Pick a time that is convenient for your schedule. The sheets will be available beginning August 26, 2013.
