Salisbury Symphony forms chorale and announces open auditions
The Salisbury Symphony announces it will form a chorus in order to engage a wider number of community members, provide talented singers with an opportunity to perform in a first-rate ensemble and to ensure a group of high-quality singers are ready when major choral works are programmed.
The Chorale will give six concerts over the next two seasons.
The first concert will be as part of the Reformation’s 500th anniversary celebration held at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Sept. 23 and jointly produced between the Salisbury Symphony and St. John’s.
For this first concert, the Chorale will be prepared by former Charlotte Symphony chorale director David Tang. He will prepare the Bach Cantata No. 80, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.” The entire concert will consist of works based on this mighty hymn originally written by Martin Luther.
The Chorale’s second concert will be the Christmas sections from Handel’s Messiah.
Open auditions for singers will be held Aug. 7 at First United Methodist Church.
Contact Hunter Safrit at email@example.com to schedule an audition. Prepare a short song that shows voice quality, pitch, and musicality. It should be with piano accompaniment which they should bring.
