Sing with us! 

Auditions for our spring term will be held March 14–17, 2024. Schedule yours now!

If you love to sing and have a passion for choral music, we invite you to audition. Our choir is dynamic and innovative, and strong musicianship skills, sight-reading and vocal/choral experience are needed to meet the challenges.

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Monday evenings, 7:30–9:45 pm at St. Thomas’s Anglican Church at 383 Huron Street in Toronto (near U of T campus). Extra sectional rehearsals may be scheduled each term. 

What to expect in the audition

Auditions last about fifteen minutes and are led by the Artistic Director, Maria Case, assisted by one or two executive members. The audition consists of the following:

Vocal Warm-ups – The director will lead a few vocal exercises to help you warm up your voice and establish a comfortable range.

Prepared Song – This can be a traditional folk song, art song or hymn, accompanied or a cappella. If you would like to be accompanied, please bring an extra copy of your music.

Sight-reading Passage – This will be an accompanied piece or passage in a comfortable range. The text will be in English, although you may also choose to sing on a vowel.

Discussion – There will be an opportunity to ask questions about the choir and the coming season.

To schedule your audition, please use the audition sign-up form below. Alternatively, contact the Membership Coordinator at torontoannexsingers@gmail.com.

I had an amazing time with your lovely choir. I am so impressed by the openness, enthusiasm, and sense of community in The Annex Singers. Very few groups have achieved the sort of connection and social capital that you have fostered. It was so inspiring to be in their presence.
