Information for singers


BRSC is an auditioned choir. Auditions are scheduled prior to the start of an upcoming concert. Contact Tim Shepard to schedule an audition.

Singers will meet individually with the director. A prepared solo is helpful and can be anything from a favorite hymn or folk song to an aria or art song.
In addition, singers should be prepared to vocalize, sight read, and respond to other music assessment exercises.

Acceptance into the choir is based on a combination of the present needs of the choir, in addition to the skills and commitment level of the individual singer. The choir strives for blend and balance of the choral sections.

Rehearsals take place at Brevard FUMC choir room on Thursday evenings. from 7:00-9:00.
