Join the Lake Ridge Chorale
We hold auditions twice a year, in January and September.
Our audition process is simple and there is no need to bring a prepared piece. There is a warm-up, which helps to determine the range of the singer as well as quality and tone. There is also a pitch matching section where the singer is asked to identify a three note sequence and sing it back. The final section is a sight reading exercise.
Auditions for the upcoming 2022-2023 season will be held on Tuesday, September 30th. Please join us at 7pm at Westminster to meet the choir and for a brief audition with our director, Terry Stackley. Please note that proof of Covid-19 vaccination and a mask are required at this location. If you are interested in auditioning, or have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rehearsals, Performances & Social Events
The Lake Ridge Chorale rehearses once a week at Westminster at Lake Ridge. Rehearsals are from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. We have three performance seasons per year where we give eight concerts to the public.
On occasion, we have been asked to join other choirs for more high-profile events, including the Arlington Chorale at the Kennedy Center's Messiah sing-a-long and a performance with the Old Bridge Chamber Orchestra. These are optional for our members, and are always are great fun.
In addition to rehearsals and performances, the group gathers regularly for fundraisers, social events and our annual holiday and summer parties.
