So auditions are happening RIGHT NOW and they’ll go on until February 5th. If you want to audition, click HERE. Fill out the form and make sure you remember what time your audition is! Both men and women can audition at that link for Men’s and Women’s Chorales.
Auditions happen in Room 43 in the basement of Cesar Chavez Hall, next to where the Cal1Card office is. They’ll be 15 minutes long and consist of basic warm-ups as well as tests of vocal range, tonal memory, and sight reading. You will be expected to prepare a very short solo piece of your choice.
Women’s Chorale is a big group of about 50 members. We meet every Wednesday and Friday from 4:15 to 6:00 PM, and we also have Sproul shows (at Sather Gate) on Fridays at 3:00 PM. We’d love to have you audition.
Up with the blue and gold, down with the red! This week is Big Game week, and we are fired up and ready to go!
Big Sing is this Wednesday, November 18th 2015 at 7 PM. Women’s Chorale will be there, taking down Stanfurd’s “singing” groups with the help of our fellow Berkeley acapella groups. We’ll be singing some Cal songs along with a spirited little number with lyrics written by Alana Tran. Don’t miss it!
We performed at Noteworthy’s Halloween Show this year! Watch the chorales’ part below. Our first song, “The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera, begins at 2:16. Then “Agony” from Into The Woods begins at 7:03. Finally we sing “Pretty Woman” from Sweeny Todd, and that starts at 9:52.
If you’re interested in more from this year’s Halloween Show, Women’s Chorale member Lisa has uploaded more clips from all the groups that performed that night!
Hey ladies! Like to sing? Want a low-key fun experience with other people who love music? Come sign up to audition for the UC Women’s Chorale!
We meet twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4:15 to 6 PM. Our setlist has included songs as varied as stuff from Carmina Burana, 60s music, and modern-day Taylor Swift and Florence and the Machine. This semester we’re going to expand our repertoire even more and do gigs and Sprouls! It’s sure to be an exciting semester, and we’d love to have you.
To audition, sign up for a slot at ucceauditions and prepare a small solo to audition with. We’ll also ask you to do some sight reading of both music and rhythm, but it’s okay if you don’t know how to do that stuff – we can teach you as the semester progresses.
Women’s Chorale is where I go to de-stress and feel good about myself again. I encourage you to apply.
We haven’t uploaded pictures in a LONG time, and so here are the pictures from the past academic year! We performed at Welcome Back and our fall and spring shows. The faces have changed completely from when the last post was made, but we’re just as excited to perform this year!
Let us know if you want us to perform for you. This semester we’re focusing on more gigs to really hone our singing abilities. Thank you for visiting! Hope to see you in our audience. (Or up on stage with us!)
