The Choral Guild is always happy to welcome new singers.
Our Artistic Director Jay Beville auditions prospective singers in August and by appointment throughout the season. Mr. BeVille checks the applicant’s ability to match pitch, sing in tune, sight read a simple piece of music, and he evaluates the singer’s range, voice quality and ability to blend.
To arrange an audition, please leave a message at (757) 220-1808 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Our membership chair will respond to schedule your audition.
Our season runs from late August until early May. Regular rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church 1333 Jamestown Road in Williamsburg. We also schedule additional dress rehearsals during the week before each concert and have occasional sectional rehearsals on Saturday mornings (one or two per concert). Our typical season includes performances in November, December, March and May.
Membership dues are $75 per season. Singers are required to follow the Guild’s policies and procedures regarding attendance, preparation and concert dress.
We love to sing, enjoy being challenged to learn new works or dust off old favorites, and welcome new singer-friends to the chorus. In addition, many of our singers choose to provide both financial and volunteer support to the organization. We have a wonderful time together. Our success depends upon the commitment of our members.
