The Greenbrier Valley Chorale invites singers to audition for its Christmas concert. Auditions will take place at Carnegie Hall, 611 Church Street, Lewisburg, on Tuesday, Sept. 4, from 5:30-7 p.m.
There are openings for all voice parts – soprano, alto, tenor and bass. Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. at Carnegie Hall beginning Sept. 11.
Auditions are brief and private, and no appointment is necessary. You do not have to be a trained singer, but some previous choral singing experience is required. Former members who have not sung with the group in two years or more should contact the director.
Singers come from all over Greenbrier County and adjacent counties in West Virginia and Virginia. Chorale members range in age from advanced high school students to retirees. The group is directed by Barbara Wygal Lutz and accompanied by Teresa Bryant.
The Christmas concert will be performed at Carnegie Hall on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 3 p.m., and will feature carols and songs whose texts, melodies and styles are rooted in early American holiday expression.
