The Carleton Choir, the cornerstone of the choral program, is a select mixed chorus of Carleton students. Each term, the ensemble presents a concert of short and extended works from the large bodies of classical, ethnic and cultural repertories, including works for mixed, treble and tenor-bass voices. Concerts are sometimes repeated off campus. Students must have good vocal skills, music reading ability, and a high degree of interest in performing quality choral music. Admission is by audition.

Prerequisite: Audition

Audition Instructions

Auditions are scheduled through Moodle.

Choral auditions will consist of a vocal range check, tonal memory, basic sight reading, and a few vocal exercises. Singers do not need to prepare a song or aria in advance.

Auditions usually take about 10 minutes, and we try to make these as informal and “user friendly” as possible. Still, good preparation always makes for a less-stressful audition experience, so we encourage you to come prepared!
