About singing with the Denver Women’s Chorus
When are rehearsals? What if I have a conflict?
The time commitment for DWC includes rehearsals every Sunday evening from 6-9 in Denver, performing concerts in November, February and May, and attending a weekend retreat in the fall and spring.
What are the financial obligations?
All singers commit to $360 per year. This amount can be paid monthly, semi-annually, or annually. Also, approximately $100 per year is paid for a combined costume and retreat fee. These fees help offset the costs associated with the chorus. Scholarships are available for singers with financial needs.
What musical knowledge or experience do you need?
DWC welcomes singers with diverse musical backgrounds. There are both highly trained singers and singers who have never performed with an ensemble before. While the ability to read music is highly beneficial, inexperienced sight-readers still find success in the chorus by using the practice tracks provided for each song. In the audition, we primarily look for singers who are able to sing a tune accurately and demonstrate a willingness and ability to respond to vocal technique instruction. DWC is a place of learning and growth where you can develop singing skills that you may not know you have yet.
What should I expect at my audition?
We aim to make our auditions as fun and relaxed as possible. Auditions are only 10 minutes long and do not require advance preparation. When you arrive, a chorus member will greet you, put you at ease and answer any questions you might have. During the audition, you can choose to sing either “Happy Birthday” or “My Country tis of Thee,” and our director will take you through some simple exercises to get to know your voice. That’s it!
What if I’ve never performed before?
Prior stage experience is helpful but not required. You will have plenty of time to practice and feel confident before you perform in your first concert.
Who will be at my audition?
DWC Artistic Director Dr. Clelyn Chapin and members from the Chorus Council.
How do I find out if I made it or not?
Dr. Chapin will notify you via email within a week from your audition.
