Interested in joining Elektra Women’s Choir? We are always looking for highly experienced and skilled, classically-based sopranos and altos. Please listen to our recordings if you are considering auditioning. If you feel your vocal skills, choral experience, and music literacy are a good fit with Elektra’s style of music, we would love to hear you!
We rehearse on Monday nights from September through June on the west side of Vancouver.
To be considered for an audition, please complete this form. We’ll be in touch as quickly as possible.
Singers selected for an audition will be heard by the Artistic Director. At the 20-minute audition, you will be asked to do basic vocalization and range testing with piano accompaniment; present a song of your choice (accompanist provided, please bring an extra copy of the music); and sight-read a work of the Artistic Director’s choice. Singers should be comfortable identifying major and minor key signatures as they will be asked to do so before sight-reading the piece(s). Note that Elektra is a classical choir, so your solo song must reflect classical vocal technique.
All singers selected for an audition will be sent the choir’s schedule and details of the costs of belonging and are asked to consider how Elektra would fit into their life before confirming their audition time. Joining Elektra is a big (and rewarding) commitment and full participation – from singing to volunteering for various special projects and events – is required of all singers.
Please note that, at present, all Elektra singers must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 at their audition.
Elektra singers are required to re-audition every two years.
