Douglas County Chamber Singers Hold Auditions

Douglas County Chamber Singers

 

The Douglas County Chamber Singers are holding auditions in August for the Fall concert season

The Chamber Singers is a 25-member group that values musicianship, proficiency, community spirit, diversity, and enjoyment of music.  The Chamber Singers is a satellite of the Cultural Arts Center of Douglasville / Douglas County and has served the community since 2002. The Chamber Singers choir has performed with the Army Ground Forces Band and has participated in community events such as September Saturdays and the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Douglas County Courthouse. They have also performed with various local Atlanta artists.

In June 2007, the Chamber Singers performed Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall under the direction of world-renowned conductor, John Rutter.  Several members of the Chamber Singers performed the Requiem again in July 2009 in Vienna, Austria, and again at Carnegie Hall in January 2010.  The Chamber Singers performed Sancta Civitas (Ralph Vaughan Williams) at Carnegie Hall in June 2017.

For several years, the Chamber Singers have been performing Handel’s Messiah as a sing-along to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season.  In 2014, the Chamber Singers were invited to sing in New York City and performed Handel’s Messiah at the Lincoln Center over Thanksgiving weekend.

Auditions include sight reading, playing a prepared piece, and scales for vocal range.

The Chamber Singers practice and perform at the First United Methodist Church of Douglasville. Practice is held on Tuesday nights, weekly, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Anyone interested in auditioning should contact Marilyn Alexander at 678.961.3623.
