Apply to audition for BCE’s 2017-2018 season

Boston Choral Ensemble will be holding auditions by invitation for all voice parts on Tuesday, August 29th and Wednesday, August 30th. The auditions will take place at Old South Church, Copley Square in downtown Boston between 6:00 and 9:30 PM. Tuesday evening is an open rehearsal where prospective singers can meet the choir and director, sing with us for the evening and hear about our plans for the upcoming season. Wednesday evening is our principal audition evening.

If you are invited to audition, you will be asked to sing a familiar tune, so there is no need to bring a prepared piece. Each audition will take approximately ten minutes and will include sight-singing and some basic vocalizing. An example of the type of sight-singing you will be asked to perform can be found here.  On the day of your audition, we ask that you arrive a few minutes before your scheduled time.

If you are interested in auditioning, please fill out the form below. If we feel that you may be a good match for the ensemble, you will receive an email from our Membership Chair with an invitation to sign up for an audition slot by the third week in August.

We invite you to peruse our web site where you can find information on our past seasons and our coming season. You can also find recordings by BCE on YouTube, Spotify and other music providers.

Feel free to contact our Membership Chair directly at with any questions. For up-to-date audition information and BCE news, join our newsletter!
