The Glacier Chorale conductor, Dr. Micah Hunter, invites singers in all voice ranges to audition for a spot in the 70-voice choir. He is especially interested in hearing baritone and tenor voices.
The auditions will be held on Friday, June 14 and Saturday, June 15. Potential singers will need to contact Dr. Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an audition time on one of these two dates.
Auditions take about 30 minutes each and consist of a brief interview, vocal exercises, sight-reading, and some tests of basic musicianship. Auditions will take place at the Glacier Symphony and Chorale offices at 69 N. Main Street in Kalispell.
The Glacier Chorale will perform on three concert weekends during the music organization’s 37th concert Season. The first will be held on November 9-10 and feature the entire ensemble in a selection of choral music. The second will be the beloved classic “Handel’s Messiah – Valley Tour” in three Flathead Valley communities on December 6-8. The Chorale finale will be April 25-26, 2020 with Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, a magnificent mass that is rarely performed and highlights four voice soloists along with the full Glacier Orchestra.
Occasionally, members of the Glacier Chorale have been invited to perform in prestigious events. In December of 2018, 20 members of the Chorale went to New York City to sing at Carnegie Hall where they performed Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 “Ode to Joy” and Choral Fantasy under Maestro Jonathan Griffith under the auspices of Distinguished Concerts International.
