Audition Requirements: Candidates are asked to sing a thoroughly-prepared musical piece of their choice which shows their vocal quality, range and artistic expression. Individuals auditioning for Festival Singers should prepare an art song, aria, folk song or hymn. Singers should bring 2 copies of their sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Singers may also sing a cappella. No taped accompaniments, please. Auditions will also include range check, sight reading and tonal memory exercises

In addition, Carolina Voices requires the following commitments of its singers: .
Attendance – Members are expected to be present for all rehearsals, all choral weekend rehearsals, and performances. Any unavoidable absences should be reported as soon as possible, preferably before the rehearsal/event. See rehearsal schedule below.

Musical Diligence –Music is expected to be well-prepared for all performances and is memorized for MainStage performances. Members are encouraged to tape rehearsals for review between rehearsals. Sheet music is provided for all concerts but must be returned to the music library in good condition after each show

Financial Support – Membership dues are $65 for the fall season and $65 for the spring season. Singers may elect to establish a payment plan, if needed. Full and partial scholarships are also available. 

Ticket Sales – Carolina Voices’ singers are strongly encouraged to ask friends, family and colleagues to purchase tickets to performances. Singers have priority for the best seats in the house.

Organization Support – As a non-profit volunteer organization, we rely on our singers to assist in organization needs. Singers are occasionally asked to volunteer time outside of rehearsals/performances to sing at community events and special performances.  Based on skills, availability and interests, singers can also volunteer to serve on a committee (Production, Hospitality, Office Support, Membership, Gala Planning and others).
