The Oratorio Society of Virginia Michael Slon, Music Director

Oratorio Society Auditions
Wednesday, September 4 and
Thursday, September 5, 2019
from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Auditions for The Oratorio Society of Virginia, the longest-running community chorus in central Virginia, will be held Wednesday, September 4 and Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm, at the Municipal Arts Center, 1119 5th St SW, Charlottesville, VA 22902.

It is an exciting time to be a part of our chorus, as we have just celebrated our 50th Anniversary, finishing this special season with a gala concert and reception.

Interested singers in all voice parts are encouraged to audition. Accepted chorus members will have weekly rehearsals with renowned conductor and Oratorio Society Music Director Michael Slon.


Chorus rehearsals are held Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. For more information about what membership in the Society entails, click here.


Auditions are held at the Municipal Arts Center in Charlottesville. Ample free parking is available adjacent to the MAC building.


Auditions will take approximately 10 minutes, and will consist of simple exercises to determine vocal range, as well as sight-reading, pitch matching, and rhythmic skills. Prospective singers need not prepare anything in advance, but may bring an optional prepared solo if they wish. All singers will hear back from us within a few days of their audition.

Please complete the Member Information Form and bring it with you to the audition.
