2022 Choral Auditions

Auditions for the St. Paul’s Adult Choir

The Adult Choir is the backbone of St. Paul’s strong tradition of excellence in liturgical
music.  The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings and sings each week September-June at
the 11:00 a.m. service of Holy Eucharist or at 5:00 p.m. Choral Evensong. Learn more and
listen to the choir.

We welcome interest and applications to audition from:

Experienced Volunteer Singers

  • Persons of all ages who love to sing, and are able to make the regular
    commitment of time throughout the season. Basic musical skills and some sight-
    reading ability are expected.
  • May audition at any time of year.

Choral Scholars

  • College students and high school juniors and seniors with musical skills and
    strong choir experience. Choral Scholars sing on the same schedule as the
