Auditions will be held Monday, August 27 at 7:00p.m, St. John’s Lutheran Church, 42-695 Washington St. in Palm Desert. The upcoming fall auditions will be conducted by Tim Bruneau, Artistic Director along with principal accompanist, Bruce Mangum.  For more information and to make an audition appointment, call 760-346-4933.
“California Desert Chorale is set to enter its second quarter-century in fine fashion. The singers are performing a huge variety of great music with excellent technique and authentic emotional commitment. Anyone who’s interested in working with a dynamic ensemble should audition,” said Tim Bruneau, Artistic Director, CDC.
California Desert Chorale consists of both professional and amateur singers who bring a wide variety of choral and solo experience to this talented ensemble.  The level of commitment is significant and should be carefully considered before auditioning.  Singers auditioning should be prepared to honor the rigorous membership guidelines, which include: a weekly Monday night rehearsal from September 2018 – April 2019 with occasional Saturday morning rehearsals. The season is also comprised of two very busy concert week schedules and occasional community service outreach performances.  Potential members should also understand that a portion of the group’s concert repertoire is sung from memory, therefore, extra time and effort on your own, outside of the scheduled rehearsals, is required of all participants. Each audition will last approximately fifteen minutes.
