"Mostly Mozart" Chamber Choir Auditions

In honor of Mozart's 260th birthday, the German-American Society of Utah will hold a concert titled "Mostly Mozart" on Saturday, October 22, 6:30 to 9 p.m. at St. Mark's Cathedral in Salt Lake City. As the title suggests, the event will feature choral works by Mozart as well as other classical pieces.

This one-time performance is a special project sponsored by the German-American Society, separate from the German Chorus Harmonie. We invite anyone interested in singing in this special chamber choir to attend auditions on Tuesday, August 9th, starting at 6:30 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church, 1030 S Foothill, Salt Lake City.

 

Audition Requirements and Procedure

  • Bring one of your favorite songs including sheet music.
  • In addition, prepare one of the following rounds by Mozart: K 561 “Bonanox” or the  K 553 “ Alleluia” round. Music for these pieces is attached below.
  • Mrs. Berger, the Choral director will do a vocal warm up exercise followed by you singing your song plus round of choice.
  • Please come and try out; this will be a low pressure audition, 

    and the music will be wonderful!
