You Belong Here!
Interested in joining the Out Loud for season 11? We would love to see you at auditions this fall!
Out Loud will hold auditions each Monday, during the month of September at 6:00pm at First Congregational Church of Colorado Springs, 20 E. St. Vrain St.. Voices of all experience levels are welcome and encouraged to audition. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I do not have a strong musical background. I’ve never sung in a chorus before. Should I still audition?
A: YES! We have members who only sang in the shower before joining, some who have advanced musical degrees, and everything in between. Part of Out Loud’s formula of success is to take a mix of singers with diverse experiences in music.
Q: How often does Out Loud rehearse?
A: We rehearse every Monday evening from 6:45 to 9:45pm, with sectional and other special rehearsals as needed.
Q: Are there financial obligations associated with membership?
A: Members of Out Loud are required to pay the following:
— Dues are $25 a month
— Retreat is $100
Financial assistance is available in exchange for volunteer hours. Complete information on costs and assistance will be available at the New Member Orientation.
Q: Do I need to prepare a song for the audition?
A: Yes. Please come prepared to sing a song or portion of a song. There may also be exercises geared toward blending, harmonizing and voice placement. The audition is very non-threatening, and you will be made to feel completely comfortable.
Q: What should I wear to the audition?
A: Whatever makes you feel comfortable!
Q: What should I bring to the audition?
A: Just yourself and the song you will sing.
Q: What happens during the audition itself?
The Out Loud Artistic Director will hear each audition. You will not be asked to sing in front of the other auditionees. The audition will consist of your song, or a portion of it, followed by a few exercises which will enable the staff to assess your vocal range and ability. The whole audition takes only a few minutes and will be over before you know it.
Q: I still have more questions.
A: Definitely feel free to contact us with your inquiries at email@example.com
