One of Vancouver’s exciting choral arts ensembles, LAUDATE SINGERS, is holding auditions for the 2021-2022 season. We are seeking singers for all sections.

In general, all singers are expected to demonstrate the following:

1. A high level of musicianship, including reading and aural skills, knowledge of languages, musical styles and diction.

2. Formal training is not necessary; however, a significant history of choral singing is required. Singers may be asked to pursue formal training to develop their vocal technique; this may be as a co-requisite upon joining the choir (with a probationary period) or as a pre-requisite for re-auditioning later.

3. The ability to blend with other voices; the ability to hear and adjust pitch, diction and tonal quality when requested.

4. Professional demeanour, consistent attendance, punctuality, attentiveness in rehearsals, willingness to prepare music for rehearsals, desire to work in a congenial manner with other singers, a positive/constructive attitude.

5. Principal singers are expected to provide leadership within their sections; an advanced level of technical vocal skill is necessary for these positions.


Applicants should be advanced choral singers with good vocal technique and extensive experience in a variety of styles and languages.

Audition requirements: four songs of contrasting style (preferably not jazz or pop); at least three different languages must be represented, including German, Italian, Latin, French and English. One selection should be from the Baroque period displaying ability to sing coloratura passages.

Honorarium – $100-$200 per concert
