Singers from the surrounding community are invited to audition for the St. Catherine Choral Society August 1-13 at St. Catherine University. St. Catherine Choral Society auditions are scheduled to begin within a few weeks, starting 8/1/2010 – Auditions are open to experienced singers and concerts will begin this fall.
The choir first concert is November 14 and will feature Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass” and Stephen Paulus’s “Break Forth in Song.”
Rehearsals are held Thursday evenings and will begin Sept. 9. The St. Catherine Choral Society is a large mixed chorus, which combines St. Catherine University students, faculty, staff and experienced singers from the community in performances of symphonic choral works.
The choir performs two concerts per year, in O’Shaughnessy Auditorium and other venues, accompanied by a professional symphony orchestra and, often, guest soloists.
