California Desert Chorale To Hold Auditions at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Palm Desert

The California Desert Chorale (CDC) wrapped up its year with SOLD OUT performances of Magical Movie Movie in April. It is now building momentum leading up to its 27th annual season and is auditioning serious, dedicated singers who feel energized to be a member of this well established and growing ensemble. The auditions for 2019-2020 will be held Monday, August 26 at 7:00p.m, St. John’s Lutheran Church, 42-695 Washington St. in Palm Desert. Auditions will be administered and conducted by CDC’s Artistic Director Tim Bruneau. For an audition appointment:

“California Desert Chorale is a vibrant, energized and focused group of dedicated, quality singers who continue to sparkle as a splendid example of artistic collaboration and a radiant cultural jewel on the desert’s arts scene. Sound interesting? Audition!” said Tim Bruneau, Artistic Director, California Desert Chorale.

California Desert Chorale is comprised of both professional and amateur singers who bring a wide diversity of choral and solo knowledge and experience to the ensemble. The level of commitment expected is significant and should be carefully considered before auditioning.

Singers auditioning should be prepared to honor the required membership requirements, which include: Monday night rehearsals from September 2019 – April 2020 with occasional Saturday morning rehearsals.

The CDC season is also comprised of two concert week schedules that are rehearsal intensive. Occasional performances are done within the communities of the Coachella Valley. Potential members should also understand that a portion of the group’s concert repertoire for the holiday and spring concerts 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.

Detailed audition and preparation requirements are available on the CDC’s new website:
