Knoxville Choral Society announces fall auditions

KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Choral Society announces fall auditions for the 2018-2019 season Aug 14 and Aug 16, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Auditions are held at Ebenezer United Methodist Church, 1001 Ebenezer Rd. in Knoxville. Openings are available in all voice parts of the 120-voice volunteer choir.

Since 1951, the Knoxville Choral Society has shared a wide range of choral music with the community. Dedicated to choral performance excellence, the group consisting of over 120 auditioned musicians performs major choral and orchestral works, highlighting a variety of choral literature and styles.

During the 2017-2018 concert season, the Knoxville Choral Society presented a choral masterworks concert under the direction of former artistic director Dr. Eric Thorson. Additionally, the KCS performed "Carmina Burana" in collaboration with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and “Aida" with the Knoxville Opera.

The 2018-2019 season presents the Knoxville Choral Society under the leadership of a new artistic director, Dr. John Orr.

“The Knoxville Choral Society creates an opportunity for singers to participate in the highest caliber of choral concerts in our area,” says Orr. “We are looking for artistic, creative singers who love choral music of all kinds, and who want to connect with each other in the creative expression of the choral arts.”

Additional information about the 2018-2019 concert season is available at knoxvillechoralsociety.org.

Rehearsals take place most Monday evenings, August-May from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Auditions include an assessment of vocal quality, sight-reading and tonal memory drills. No prepared piece is required for the audition.
