Join Us as a Chorale Member

Sing with the Everett Chorale Love to sing? Join the Chorale! If you are looking for an outlet for your passion, this is the program for you! Enjoy learning a wide variety of choral music and performing for the community in our regular season concert and special performances. Membership in the Everett Chorale is open to all interested, fully vaccinated singers with previous choral experience. An informal audition is required (see below).

Audition and Singer Commitment Information

There are two primary requirements for successful membership in the Everett Chorale: a basic level of musical aptitude as determined by an audition and a commitment to individual work as needed to keep musical pace with the Chorale's weekly progress.

AUDITION: The audition consists of a one-on-one 10-minute session with the director to determine their basic capability and musical orientation. No solo music is necessary. Our director, Heather MacLaughlin Garbes, will vocalize you through your entire range, conduct a sight-singing and rhythm assessment, and perhaps have you sing a familiar melody or repeat some sequences of notes. Having any difficulty with this does not necessarily mean you are disqualified but does give the director important information about the collection of voices in the Chorale.

Auditions may be scheduled by contacting the director, Heather MacLaughlin Garbes, at heather@garbes.net and will be coordinated around the first rehearsals of each quarter.

SINGER COMMITMENT: Members of the Chorale commit to putting in individual rehearsal time as needed to retain progress made in weekly rehearsal and to establish a foundation of notes and rhythms on some pieces. This work will vary from week to week and from concert to concert, but is a fundamental mindset for successful members.

COVID PRECAUCTIONS: To make singing with the Everett Chorale as risk free as possible, we are requiring that everyone be fully vaccinated (two weeks past the last vaccination) and fully masked (above the nose, under the chin and close to the face.)
