Choir Auditions

Choir Auditions - Spring 2023

Choir is for everyone, not just conservatory students! Every choir has singers from many different majors and minors. If you've been singing in choir for many years, or if you're just starting out, there are many ways to sing at Gettysburg College.

In the spring semester there are opportunities for Concert Choir (mixed voice group that rehearses WE 7:30-9:30) and Audeamus (upper-voice choir that rehearses TU 11:30a-1:00p).

Voice checks for the spring will take place on Monday, January 16 between 4:00-6:30pm in Schmucker 214

Sign up on the door at Schmucker 212
