You Are Invited to an Open Rehearsal
Palm Springs Gay Men’s Chorus invites you to attend rehearsals before you audition at the Mizell Senior Center, 480 S. Sunrise Way, Palm Springs.
Please join us as we rehearse our standard repertory. Open rehearsals will give you a wonderful opportunity to meet chorus members and experience the style of music that the chorus most often performs.
Auditioning can be a stressful process, but we try to do our best to make it as easy and friendly, as possible. The audition is private. The Artistic Director and accompanist, and maybe the directors of our small groups, are the only ones in the room during your audition.
You can prepare a song for your audition. We have an excellent pianist who will be happy to accompany you for your audition.
It helps if you can provide the music, but our accompanist, knows most of the standards and can find a comfortable key for you to sing.
If you don’t feel comfortable with a prepared solo, you will be asked to sing a familiar song, “Happy Birthday”, “My Country Tis of Thee”, etc.
After you have sung for us, the Artistic Director will have you sing some simple scales to determine your vocal range and your place in the chorus.
Relax and enjoy the experience. Take a deep breath. We all know how stressful this can be. We will do our best to make your audition a positive experience.
If you wish to audition, fill out the form at the bottom of this page or click here for the Audition Information Form. You can complete the form and send to the Artistic Director or print and bring it to your audition.
If you are unable to attend our info night, please contact the Artistic Director, Douglas Wilson at PSGMCdirector@gmail.com to schedule a more convenient time.
You will be notified by email the day after your audition regarding the results.
