Winchester Musica Viva Ignite a Passion in Song

Auditions will be held in August as well as throughout the year as positions are available. Auditions generally involve singing with the ensemble as well as meeting individually with the artistic director for vocalising and sight singing.

Winchester Musica Viva announces open auditions for singers of all voice parts as it begins its 42nd year of bringing fine choral music to the Northern Shenandoah Valley.  The semi-professional chorus is under direction of recently-named Artistic Director, Dr. Bryce Hayes, Associate Professor of Music from James Madison University.

Two concert sets will be held the weekends of December 16, 2022 and March 25, 2023.  Rehearsals are held Sunday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm, beginning September 11th at Grace Lutheran Church, 26 W. Boscawen Street, Winchester, VA.

Interested singers should prepare a short solo, as well as be able to sightread.  For additional information or to schedule an audition, please email prior to August 21, 2022.
