Auditions

Vocal Ensemble

We are seeking singers to join us in the Alto, Tenor, and Baritone sections, and singers in all voices to join our extended roster for the 2023-2024 season.

Luminos Ensemble is a professional chamber choir: all singers are paid for rehearsals and performances.

Luminos Ensemble seeks to provide its artists with a meaningful artistic experience; this is an important part of our mission. We are seeking excellent, experienced musicians who enjoy singing a wide variety of music - from ancient to contemporary - and enjoy the challenge of creating compelling ensemble performances in a small ensemble.
 
We rehearse weekly on Thursday evenings September-June, preparing 5+ major projects per year; therefore, a premium is placed on musicianship, professionalism, and personal preparation. A well-developed sense of humour is also an asset.
 
The audition will consist of:
 
   •    Singing a short solo piece of your choice, unaccompanied (this does not need to be memorized)

    •    Vocalizes to check vocal range
   •    Sight-singing

    •    Singing two prepared excerpts from the standard choral repertoire (these will be sent to you once your audition is booked,

          and do not need to be memorized)

 
If you are interested in singing with Luminos Ensemble, send us an email using the form below; please include the section you would be auditioning for (S1 S2 A1 A2 T1 T2 Bar Bass), and a brief description of your musical background. Resumes and headshots are not required. We will contact you to set a specific audition date and time. If you encounter problems with the form, please send an email to
