Do you sing? Would you like to join Nevada County’s Music in the Mountains Chorus? Schedule an appointment for an audition today!
Music in the Mountains choral director conductor Ryan Murray will hold auditions for experienced singers interested in joining the 80-voice MIM Chorus. Auditions will be held on Monday, February 21st at Peace Lutheran Church (828 W.Main St.) in Grass Valley between 5:30pm and 7pm.
Due to the unique risk for the transmission of Covid-19 while singing, all participants will need to be vaccinated and are required to wear masks while rehearsing. Rehearsal space is well-ventilated with multiple air purifiers and social distancing.
The Chorus performs several times a year, sharing their love of great choral music with the community. Interested singers should be able to read music and have sight-reading skills. The individual auditions will be in three parts: vocalization, pitch memory and sight singing.
The Chorus is directed by Artistic Director and Conductor Ryan Murray, who since 2008 has been superbly guiding the growth and improvement of the group. Recent performances include an array of great choral works, such as Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Toward the Unknown Region, Gilbert & Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore, and Dan Forrest’s Requiem.
