Charleston Symphony Chorus - Audition Request Form
About the Chorus and our Rehearsal schedules:

The Charleston Symphony Chorus is an all-volunteer, auditioned chorus that serves the greater Charleston area. We generally rehearse from 7-9 PM on Tuesday evenings during the performance season (late-August through early June, but hours are subject to change). We rehearse at the Cato Arts Center at the College of Charleston (corner of Calhoun and St. Philips Streets), on the second floor, essentially right above the Halsey Gallery. We have access to free parking on our regular rehearsal nights.

Our Director(s):

Our music director is Dr. Rob Taylor, who also serves as the Director of Choral Studies at the College of Charleston, among several other acclaimed choirs he leads. Jordan Boyd is the Associate Director. Our repertoire is traditionally choral/orchestral work, and we perform with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. We also perform in early June with the Spoleto USA Festival Orchestra and Westminster College Choir, under the direction of Dr. Joe Miller, the choral director of the Spoleto USA Festival.

Auditions:

Auditions are scheduled on Tuesday evenings, and should take no more than 10 minutes. You do not need to prepare anything specific to sing for the audition. It is not imperative that you be able to read music, though that skill is certainly helpful. There are periods of open enrollment for auditions, and periods when the Chorus is closed to new members (as we get close to performances). So please understand if you're asked to wait to audition.

Expectations of Chorus Members:

The annual dues to sing with the Charleston Symphony Chorus is $50. Our singers are also strongly encouraged to help sell tickets or other activities in support of our mission.

It is expected that all singers will attend at least 2/3 of all regular rehearsals, and 100% of all dress rehearsals for a performance (unless excused by the music director). Attendance is tracked and may be used to determine eligibility in performing in a given concert. Specific rehearsal and performance requirements are published annually at the beginning of the concert season in August.

Why join?

Our members are young and old, and everything in-between. We share one thing in common, and that's a passion for singing and sharing fine choral music with the community. That's what has kept this Chorus strong for over 30 years. We hope you can join us!
