Auditions

Auditions

Auditions are now open for the Spring 2022 season. Please note, to be accepted into Coro Lux— or even to audition– you must show proof you are fully vaccinated. (Please also note all Fall, 2021, members of the chorus are automatically in the Spring 2022, ensemble.)

Our concerts this spring will be a performance of Ellingboe’s ‘Requiem’ with the New Mexico Philharmonic on April 3rd (sung by the larger ‘Oratorio Society’) and our annual Pops concerts at the Canteen Brewhouse on May 1st (sung by the smaller ‘Chamber Chorus’).

The following times are available: Friday, January 7th, 2 – 4:30 pm, and Saturday January 8th, from 10 am to 12:30 pm. Friday’s auditions will be held in the choir room of St. Paul Lutheran. Saturday’s auditions will be held in the Fellowship Hall of St. Paul Lutheran (1100 Indian School Road, NE)

For more information or to sign up for an audition, contact Ashley Jonkman, at ashley.jonkman@abqcorolux.org

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 is be on Tuesday, January 11th.  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.

In regard to the audition process itself:

If you cannot find an audition slot that fits your schedule, contact Ashley Jonkman, at ashley.jonkman@abqcorolux.org to see about setting up a different appointment.

For Friday auditions, held in the Choir Room of St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1100 Indian School Rd. NE, please wait in your car outside the choir room until someone comes to get you. (Otherwise you’ll walk straight in on someone else’s audition.) For Saturday auditions you can enter and wait in the carpeted area immediately on your left upon entering the church.

You will be tested on vocal range, size and timbre of voice, and tonal memory. You will also be asked to sight-read.

Thanks again for your interest and good luck!
