Auditions will be held from 7 to 9 pm at Gahanna Middle School West (350 North Stygler Rd). Each auditionee will be asked to sing 16-32 bars (approximately 30 to 60 seconds) of a prepared song. Please bring piano music for the accompanist. Callbacks will be on Monday, October 31st. We are having separate auditions for the Children’s Chorus. All information about those auditions will come through Gahanna public schools, St. Matthews, Gahanna Christian Academy and Shepard Nazarene.
PLEASE BRING YOUR CALENDAR! You will be asked to list all rehearsal conflicts ahead of time at auditions. It is vital in casting that we know of any work conflicts or vacations in advance, so that we can work around them. Resume and headshots are optional.
