Auditions are necessary for entry to the two smaller Addison Singers groups, the Jazz Ensemble and the Chamber Choir, in order to achieve a good blend and balance of voices, and to ensure that singers have the musicianship and sight-reading skills to be able to perform the chosen repertoire to a high standard.
Auditions for the Chamber Choir and Jazz Ensemble are usually held at the beginning of each term. Successful applicants are asked to commit themselves for a minimum of a term to include the concert or ideally for longer and to participate in at least 75% of the rehearsals.
