Oratorio Society to Hold Auditions for 2013-14 Season
The Syracuse University Oratorio Society, a mixed vocal ensemble composed of SU students and community members, will hold auditions for its 2013-14 performance season on Monday, Aug. 12, and Tuesday, Aug. 13, from 5-8 p.m. in Crouse College.
The Oratorio Society enriches the Syracuse community through education and development of choral music. The chorus specializes in large works performed with area orchestras. Under the direction of John Warren, assistant professor and chair of the choral studies department in SU’s Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music, the choir rehearses at SU’s prestigious Crouse College.
Many performances are held at various locations in the Syracuse community, including the John H. Mulroy Civic Center, Crouse College and Most Holy Rosary Church, as well as in conjunction with such organizations as Symphoria, Syracuse’s professional orchestra.
No formal preparation is necessary. Basses and tenors are especially encouraged to audition. For more information or to schedule an audition, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 315-443-4106. Visit the Oratorio Society online at www.syracuseuniversitychoirs.org.
