Thank you for your interest in The Singers, led by Artistic Director Matthew Culloton! The 2024-2025 calendar marks The Singers’ 21st season of sharing our mission and vision with our community of supporters.

The Singers is a 40-voice professional choir founded in 2004, and we are welcoming auditions in all vocal sections as we search for artists with choral experience (collegiate, community, and/or professional experience encouraged), solid and flexible vocal technique, sight-reading proficiency, and keen artistic instincts. There is no fee in order to audition for The Singers.

The Singers’ organization strongly encourages audition submissions from minority group members, persons with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and anyone who can add to the artistic merit and vision of The Singers!

Your preparation of both excerpts should be at a performance level.
