The La Jolla Symphony Chorus welcomes trained singers (university, student, and community) with excellent music reading skills who are interested in a serious commitment to choral singing. Open auditions will be held by appointment at UCSD on September 15 and 28, 2013.
The audition process is designed to be thorough but fair, so we can add serious musicians, not only vocalists, to the chorus. Please be ready for the following vocalization, sight reading, written quiz, and a prepared song. (More Info)

From Choral Director David Chase
I am sometimes asked to explain why our audition process is somewhat complicated, especially in that it includes a written "quiz" and a task that specifically tests the ability to sing a familiar song in an unfamiliar way, as well as the usual tests of vocal ability. (More Info)
Open auditions are held on an annual basis in late summer before the fall term begins at UCSD. Although UCSD students who wish to register for Music 95D will be allowed to audition at the beginning of each quarter, community singers who miss the fall open audition will follow a new In-Season Audition process.

The La Jolla Symphony Chorus (offered as Music 95-D through UCSD) rehearses from September to early June, every Monday from 7 to 10 p.m. in the Recital Hall at the Conrad Preby Music Center. The center is located across the street from the Gilman Parking Structure on the UCSD campus in La Jolla. Extra rehearsals may be scheduled as needed. (More Info)
UCSD requires evening parking permits, which cost approximately $43 per quarter (or $3 per hour). (More Info)
