Auditions for UC Women’s Chorale happen at the beginning of every semester. They will be around 15 minutes long and will consist of basic warm-ups as well as tests of vocal range, tonal memory, and sight reading. You will also be expected to prepare a very short solo piece of your choice. This piece may be accompanied if you wish if you bring sheet music. UC Women’s Chorale features 50 enthusiastic singers of varying experiences and strengths, and we are always happy to accept new singers.

Auditions for Fall 2018 are going on from August 20th until Friday, September 7th, 2018. If none of the available times work for you, please contact this year’s managers, Maya Para ( and Lia Judokusumo (

Our rehearsals are 4:15 to 6:00 PM every Wednesday and Friday, as well as occasional sectionals that can take place on Mondays within 4 and 6 PM. If you become a member of UC Women’s Chorale, we will expect good attendance, though exceptions can be made for recurring class conflicts.
