The Valley Chorale of Front Royal welcomes new singers with confidence, choral-singing experience and a passion for music and choral performance.
Mondays, 7:00pm- 9:00pm in Front Royal, VA
$50.00 per semester. No dues for youth (under 21) and students.
Step 1: Initial Contact
We ask that potential new singers — including singers who formerly were a part of the Front Royal Oratorio Society — contact us in advance. If you are interested in singing with us for our next performance semester (January 2020 – April 2020) leading up to our spring concerts, please email us (using the email address below) with the following information:
1. Your voice part (soprano, alto, tenor or bass)
2. Relevant musical background/training
3. Choral-singing experience: If so, how many years? What types of music? Are you currently singing with a chorus?
Step 2: Invitation
Based on this initial contact, we may invite you to our first rehearsals. Our rehearsal sessions are not drop-in; therefore please do not show up unannounced. Potential new singers should expect to attend a couple of rehearsals so that they can ascertain if their skill level is commensurate with that of the Chorale. After this period, interested singers will be voice-tested by our Artistic Director.
The Chorale’s Current Needs
To maintain a balanced sound, we are recruiting the following voice parts for our choral semester beginning January 2020:
1. Soprano (4 – 5 singers)
2. Tenor (2 – 3 singers)
3. Bass (3 – 5 singers)
At present we have a sufficient number of altos; however, if you are an alto with exceptional musical training and choral experience, we’d like to hear from you. Interested altos will be wait-listed until we determine how balanced our sound will be.
Youth singers (all voice parts) are especially encouraged to join our growing number of young singers! (Must be at least 15 years of age and have parent/guardian consent.) We currently have an energetic contingent of young singers in our mix, and we extend an enthusiastic welcome to others of high school, college and graduate-school age who love learning and performing choral music.
