JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — The Johns Creek Chorale is looking for people with a song in their hearts to join their family of performers.
The Chorale is a group of adults from across the north Atlanta region that performs vocal concerts throughout the year. They also have a woman’s choir, Tapestry.
The group is holding auditions Saturday, July 13 and July 20 from 9 a.m. to noon at Johns Creek United Methodist Church. Auditions are open to anyone over the age of 17.
“They don’t have to be a professional singer,” Executive Director Linda Bergmann said. “Amateurs are welcome. They just have to love to sing.”
The Johns Creek Chorale formed five years ago. Its mission, Bergmann said, is to inspire a lifelong love of singing.
Many of the members, including Bergmann, sang in school but pursued other interests in college or early adulthood.
“We want to keep people singing,” she said. “The group is so much fun to be a part of and there is so much talent in this area.”
The audition will consist of a vocal range check, tonal memory check and sight reading a short piece chosen by Artistic Director Nathan Frank.
Bergmann encouraged interested singers to not be intimidated by the audition process.
The Chorale is looking for around 70 members.
Chorale members are asked to pay a $100 fee and agree to make all of the performances and 90 percent of rehearsals. Rehearsals are most Tuesday nights from late August to late April beginning at 7 p.m.
Auditions, rehearsals and most performances will be at Johns Creek United Methodist Church, at 11180 Medlock Bridge Road. Auditions will be in the Gathering Room located near the sanctuary.
Anyone interested in auditioning cam sign up for an audition timeslot at the Chorale’s website: thejohnscreekchorale.com. Singers are asked to arrive five minutes prior to their scheduled audition time.
