Magnum Chorum Auditions for 2020-2021 Concert Season
Magnum Chorum seeks singers of all voice parts for its 30th Anniversary Season. At this time, we are moving forward with a two-step virtual audition process. Deadline for application: Sunday, May 17.
Step 1: Complete this online form and submit a recording of your prepared solo (art song, aria or lied) by Sunday, May 17. You may sing a cappella or with accompaniment. If you require a recorded accompaniment, please submit that request on your form by May 15. Submissions will be reviewed and selections made to participate in the next step of the audition process on Monday, May 18.
Step 2: If invited to continue in the audition process, you will be assigned a time for a live audition via Zoom on Thursday, May 21 (6:00-9:00 pm) or Saturday, May 23 (10:00 am-2:00 pm). Your range, flexibility, sight-reading, and tonal memory will be assessed in this 10-minute audition. If you do not have the technological capability to audition via Zoom or need/require other accommodations, please let us know and alternative arrangements will be made. Following your vocal audition is a brief interview via Zoom regarding your interest in singing with Magnum Chorum.
Our hopeful plans for Magnum Chorum’s 30th anniversary season include an All Saints concert featuring the sacred folk tunes of Cyrillus Kreek, Scandinavian Christmas concerts, a midwinter collaboration with René Clausen and Magnum Chorum alums and a spring collaboration with Anton Armstrong and the St. Olaf Choir.
Magnum Chorum rehearses from September to May on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:45 pm at Westwood Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park, where Magnum Chorum serves as Choir in Residence.
