AUDITIONS NOW OPEN FOR OUR FALL SEASON

Auditions are now open for the Fall 2022 season. Please note, to be accepted into Coro Lux you must show proof you are fully vaccinated. (Please also note all veteran members must reaudition.) Vaccinations will continue to be required for choir members, but masks for rehearsals will now be optional. Please know this policy is for the foreseeable future. If and when things change in regard to infection rates, we will adjust our policy accordingly. The Coro Lux Board has also voted to buy air purifiers for our rehearsal room at church.

Audition dates are Wednesday, 8/17; Thursday, 8/18; Friday, 8/19; Saturday, 8/20 and will be held in the choir room of St. Paul Lutheran (1100 Indian School NE). Please select from the links below to sign up on the day of your choice.

Here are some details to note before your audition.

  • It is not necessary to bring an accompanist. Ideally, you will bring a prepared solo, but not having a solo is also acceptable.
  • Coro Lux has two groups: the Oratorio Society (60 members) and the Chamber Chorus (16 members). Each group has its own set of concerts. Members of the Chamber Chorus must also sing in the Oratorio Society.
  • The first rehearsal will be on Tuesday, September 6th.  Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 7 – 9 pm and are held at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1100 Indian School Rd. NE.
  • The cost of membership is $85 per “semester” but we have a generous scholarship program. If you are chosen for Coro Lux and cannot afford the tuition, simply let us know.
