Auditions for The Dessoff Choirs, NYC
Date: July 3, 2014
Location: New York, NY, New York, USA
The Dessoff Choirs is currently holding auditions for new members of all voice types. Auditions include vocalizing, sight-reading, and singing a short piece of your choice.
Founded in 1924 by Margarete Dessoff, The Dessoff Choirs is known for pioneering performances of choral works from the pre-Baroque era through the 21st century. As one of New York City’s leading choruses, Dessoff presents its own concerts and frequently collaborates with other ensembles. The “s” in Choirs indicates Dessoff’s various ensembles: a core group of 65 voices, a large Symphonic Choir for orchestral engagements, and a smaller Chamber Choir selected for more intimate settings.
The Dessoff Choirs rehearses weekly on Monday evenings from September through May, and produces a concert series of approximately 6-7 events in addition to outside engagements.
