La Jolla Symphony & Chorus will hold open auditions for its chorus on Sept. 12 and 20 for experienced singers of all voice types.
Under the leadership of conductor David Chase since 1973, the chorus is known for its varied repertoire and excellent performances. With its sister ensemble, La Jolla Symphony Orchestra, the chorus performs masterworks of classical and contemporary composers in Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD in a six-concert subscription series.
This season, the repertoire includes "Mass" by Leonard Bernstein, "Stabat Mater" by Karol Szymanowski and "War Requiem" by Benjamin Britten.
The chorus also brings concerts of sacred choral music to community audiences in area churches and cathedrals and has been featured in concert tours in Europe and Mexico.
Open auditions will be held by appointment at the new Conrad Prebys Music Center on the UCSD campus in La Jolla. Singers with excellent music reading skills and a serious commitment to music are invited to audition. For an audition appointment, interested singers should contact chorus manager Mea Daum at
