The vocal audition for membership into the Toledo Choral Society will include the following:

Vocalization: Extension of range to determine your vocal placement.
Aural Retention: Singing back (recalling) a succession of pitches played from the piano.
Rhythmic Accuracy: Clapping selected rhythms.
Sight Reading: Reading at sight, selected melodies, as well as reading a vocal part from a Bach Chorale.
Members will also be responsible for a yearly membership fee, music rentals or purchases, as well as performance attire. Members are also required to attend a specific number of rehearsals prior to each performance. This requirement is set yearly by the director.
Prospective members may attend any rehearsal! We would love for you to visit.
Rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7:30-9:30pm beginning Monday, January 6th. You are welcome to join us before rehearsals to mingle with our members and check out the music and concerts we have planned for the rest of our 100th Anniversary Season. We will also have rehearsals on Saturday mornings from 10a-Noon
