Choir Auditions

Choir is for everyone, not just conservatory students!

Every choir has singers from 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.

Choir auditions for the Spring semester will take place on the first day of classes, January 22, from 6:00-9:00pm in Schmucker 214. 

There are openings in College Choir, Concert Choir and Camerata for all voice parts.  Audeamus will be on hiatus in Spring 2024.
