Audition Info

Audition for The Handel Society of Music

The Handel Society is an auditioned choir and welcomes new members, soloists, and orchestra members.

Although the choir is auditioned, a love and passion for singing and a desire for learning is equally important to ability and talent, so all interested persons are encouraged to apply.
