The Utah Symphony Chorus just announced upcoming auditions for the 2013-2014 Utah Symphony season,

The auditions will be held on April 23 and 24. The Utah Symphony Chorus, directed by Susanne Sheston, is a volunteer chorus that performs the masterworks of the symphonic choral repertoire with the Utah Symphony, led by Music Director Thierry Fischer. Upcoming repertoire for 2013-2014 includes Berlioz's "Damnation of Faust," and Mozart's "Mass in C," both under the direction of Fischer.

According to USUO:

"Interested singers should be excellent musicians with significant choral and vocal performance experience. Applicants should contact Shaun Ricks (801.869.9050 or sricks@usuo.org) to request an audition appointment. Each audition consists of vocal exercises, sight-reading, and singing a simple, well-known tune. A limited number of paid section leader positions are also available for all sections. Section leaders receive an honorarium for participation in each concert. Applicants for section leader should prepare an aria or art song for the audition."
