Cabrillo Symphonic Chorus provides an in-depth study of choral music techniques and performance of large choral ensemble masterworks from the Classical, Romantic and Contemporary periods, unaccompanied and with an orchestra.
Our ensemble is comprised of singers of varied backgrounds and strengths. We are brought together by a love of the literature, a desire to sing together and to learn more about our singing voices, and to improve. It is profoundly important to respect one another's abilities and ambitions, to support one another, and to take personal responsibility for being excellent one's self. We also have the responsibility to listen with an open mind and a joyful heart to the corrections given. Ultimately, our job is to perform works with integrity and beauty. The process should include astute preparation on each singer's part so that our time together is productive and pleasurable for us all.
Joining the Chorus is "by audition." Auditions are held on the first Tuesday of the semester. Occasionally this occurs at the end of the first regular rehearsal. Auditions include sight-reading, demonstration of musicianship skills and reading in several foreign languages. Find details on the Auditions page.
Rehearsals- When & Where: We meet in room #5148 inside of the VAPARecital Hall #5000 on corner of Soquel Drive and Cabrillo College Drive (ocean side of Soquel.)
