The Masterwork Chorus holds fall 2017 auditions by appointment on Wednesday evenings, September 13 and 20, at Chatham United Methodist Church (CUMC), 460 Main Street, Chatham.

Openings are available in all voice parts, but tenors and basses are especially encouraged to join.  Contact Don MacGowan at (973) 479-4020 or membership@masterwork.org. Other arrangements may be made if necessary. 

During the audition, singers will be asked to vocalize, carry out pitch - and rhythm - matching exercises, sight read in a four-part piece and, optionally, sing a prepared selection.  Previous choral experience is highly desirable.  Prospective singers are invited to the chorus’ first rehearsal on September 6, 2017 to acquaint themselves with singers and rehearsal style.

 March celebrates the Bernstein Centenary with works that include selections from Mass, Candide, and a West Side Story medley, while the season concludes with War and Peace that juxtaposes the lovely Fauré Requiem with Ralph Vaughan Williams’s powerful Dona Nobis Pacem.
