Aria Women’s Choir Announces New Audition Kind

Now instead of stressful one on one auditions for Aria, you can now audition in a group of ladies and not have to be by yourself! Just come to the first rehearsal of the current concert season on Tuesday August 27 from 7:00pm – 9:30pm and sing with Aria, then stay for a short group hearing. That’s all. No more one on one, scary, stressful auditions. Aria sings 3 concert per year, and you can sing any one or all 3 of those concerts. You do not have to commit to the full year! We have between 10-12 rehearsals for each concert and you can pick the concerts you want, or yes, you can sing all three if you want!

Sign Ups for the group audition are needed. We just need to know if you are coming! Click on the link below to sign up for a group audition!
