Callbacks are to see how various voices match, how well personalities mesh, and how well singers take directions – as well as to determine whether singers have the capacity and discipline to learn the assigned excerpts.
ALL SINGERS, both returning members and Chamber Choir hopefuls invited to the callbacks, are expected to learn the callback excerpt. During the callbacks, both the callback excerpt AND the two audition excerpts will be sung alone and in groups.
Be prepared to sing some or all of the excerpts alone during the callback session

NEW INFO (as of 9:00 am Friday) - the Callback list will be emailed to you before noon on Saturday. Because you need to know for sure your name wasn't omitted, it will say who did and who didn't make callbacks.
