MTD Campus Choir & Chamber Singers HearingsEveryone who is interested in participating in one of the Marywood University choirs should sign up for a hearing. This includes singers who are already in Campus Choir or Chamber Singers, and singers who are registered to take Campus Choir as a requirement. The hearings will take place August 23-26 in Room 206 of Sette LaVerghetta Center. If you have any questions about the choirs, please feel free to e-mail Dr. Rick Hoffenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
The Marywood Campus Choir, a large chorus of students, faculty, staff, and community members, performs frequently with the Marywood Orchestra. In addition, Campus Choir will be performing the Beethoven Symphony No. 9 with the Northeast Pennsylvania Philharmonic this year. If you are only interested in Campus Choir, you do not need to prepare anything for your hearing. It is simply an opportunity for me to meet you and hear you sing a few scales. Campus Choir rehearses on Tuesdays from 6:00 to 8:15 in Room 104. The first rehearsal will be on Tuesday, August 27th.
Chamber Singers is a small select choir that performs several times each semester both on-campus and off-campus. Repertoire includes a variety of sacred and secular repertoire, as well as vocal jazz. The upcoming academic year will include recording sessions for a new compact disc, as well as a tour to California. If you are auditioning for Chamber Singers, please prepare one song for the audition. It can be a folk song, a hymn, an aria, an art song - just about anything. The Chamber Singers audition will also include a bit of vocalizing and sight-singing. Chamber Singers rehearses Mondays 3:00-3:50, Wednesdays 2:00-2:50, and Thursdays 3:00-3:50. If you are interested in Chamber Singers, please be sure to keep these time periods free in your schedule. The first rehearsal will be on Wednesday, August 28th.
