Dalhousie University Chorus
About the Dal Chorus
The Dalhousie University Chorus is a chamber choir (30-40 voices) comprised of music students from all idioms as well as experienced choral singers from other disciplines and the community. Excellence, innovation, and collaboration are the hallmarks of the Chorus and the music crosses all periods and genres. Concerts often feature other performers from the Fountain School of Performing Arts and the group has undertaken several community-centred collaborations. The choir normally gives two public performances per year. Students can register for Dal Chorus as part of an ensembles credit or can be involved purely for their own enjoyment.
Rehearsals are twice weekly and fall within Dal's academic calendar year (including all Dal holidays, closures, etc.)
Mondays, 4:30-6:00 pm (Arts Centre Rm 121)
Wednesdays, 4:30-6:00 pm (Arts Centre Rm 111)
Auditioning for Dal Chorus involves a low-stress vocal "interview" with the conductor, Christina Murray. You do not have to prepare a piece to sing. Instead, Christina will take you through a series of vocal exercises to get to know your voice, your singing skills, and your background. Singers will be selected based on voice part, choral experience, intonation, and ability to hold a part in harmony singing.
