University Chorus Seeks Singers
The UC Davis College of Letters and Science’s Department of Music is holding auditions for University Chorus on Tuesday, Jan. 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Music Building. Students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to audition. There are openings for all voice parts.
Joining the chorus provides singers with the opportunity to perform onstage in Jackson Hall at the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. The hall’s superb acoustics are renowned by numerous acclaimed musicians and vocalists who have performed there.
“When you join the University Chorus, you make new friends who enjoy singing profound texts and performing exciting music,” said Caleb Lewis, director of choirs. “We also learn how to improve our singing voice and strengthen our musical skills. No previous experience is required.”
Over the years, the University Chorus has presented programs featuring a diverse range of thoughtful and engaging vocal music from choral classics to contemporary works. Their 2008 performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 has received nearly three million views on YouTube to date.
The University Chorus rehearses Tuesdays and Thursdays 4 to 6 p.m. in the Music Building. The first concert in 2019 is scheduled for March 9 in Jackson Hall.
