AUDITIONS

Auditions

2021-2022 Season – Please note that auditions for the 2021-2022 season will be held only when we receive some assurance that the choir will be able to proceed with rehearsals and performances this year. You are still welcome to request an audition, and we will contact you at a time when the choir can begin its operations again.

OFS information and audition request

The OFS season is from September to May. We usually hold a concert in the first week of December, and a spring concert in May. Auditions are normally held in August and December, but also as needed throughout the year.

As a first step, please fill out the form on this page. We will contact you within a few days to follow up on your request.

Audition format

Auditions normally take about 15 minutes, and there is nothing to prepare ahead of time. The evaluation is made based on vocal range, tone production, sight-singing ability, and hearing skills.

Music reading is a basic requirement to sing in the choir.

Audition and rehearsal location

We rehearse on Tuesdays, from 7:00pm to 9:30pm at Willowstone Academy, 4091 Lakeshore Road in Kelowna.

In the two weeks prior to concert dates, there are additional mandatory rehearsals. Full rehearsal schedules are given to singers at the beginning of each season.

Fees

$175 per person for the season.

$300 per couple for the season.

$100 for students (high school, college or university) for the season.
