The Chorale welcomes singers of all voices and ages for volunteer membership. Initial 15-minute auditions are required before joining, so that Scott Youngs, the AMC Music Director, can learn the voices of all choristers and plan repertoire for the season. Candidates should have choral singing experience, read music, and be able to prepare their parts outside of ensemble rehearsals. Please prepare a simple, short solo piece in English or Latin (hymnals are available); Scott will take you through simple exercises in pitch memory, sight-reading, and rhythm reading so he can get a general assessment of your vocal capabilities. An accompanist will be provided.
Please Note: Per AMC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, all persons wishing to participate in auditions must document their fully vaccinated status.
The Arizona Masterworks Chorale, Inc., is a membership corporation, supported by ticket sales, grants, and donations. Choristers are assessed seasonal membership dues set by the Board of Directors to partially underwrite Chorale expenses. Choristers are responsible for providing their own performance attire and may be asked to contribute toward the purchase of selected sheet music. Special arrangements can be made if required. To maintain the quality of the ensemble, all Choristers are required to re-audition annually. Solos and ensemble roles within concert works are open to Choristers.
Rehearsals are Mondays from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at Ascension Lutheran Church, 7100 North Mockingbird Lane, Paradise Valley
The Arizona Masterworks Chorale is Chorale-in-Residence at Ascension Lutheran
