Things are well underway for our 2016-2017 Season! Our plans are, as usual, full of new challenges and we are welcoming enthusiastic young choristers between the ages of 15 and 25 to audition for our 35th year of exceptional choral learning and performances.
To give you an idea of the commitment involved, rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:45 p.m. – 9:15 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Parish (174 Wilbrod) with the 2016/2017 season rehearsals beginning on Tuesday September 6th.
2016-2017 concerts confirmed for this year include:
- Remembrance Day Concert on November 11th at 8:00 p.m. ORYC will be joined by the Capital Chamber Choir for this amazing concert which will include Brahms’ Requiem with orchestral accompaniment. Other choral works to be performed include In Paradisum (Christine Donkin), In Remembrance (Eleanor Daley), and In Flanders Fields (Gilles Leclerc)
- Christmas Concert on December 15th at 8:00 p.m. featuring Vivaldi’s Gloria
- Songs for St. Joe’s Supper Table concert on March 5th at 3:00 pm
- Mother’s Day concert on May 14th at 3:00 p.m. featuring Handel’s Coronation Anthems with orchestral accompaniment
One important part of this preparation is auditioning new members, and building the ORYC Family.
Formal auditions are scheduled three times during the season, however auditions can be scheduled at other times throughout the year by sending a request by completing the form below, or to find out more about auditioning with us, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Appointments for auditions are currently being scheduled for:
Every Tuesday until the end of June. Auditions are scheduled consecutively in 10 minute intervals, counting backwards from 6:40PM (i.e. 6:30PM, 6:20PM, 6:10PM and so on).
Throughout the year we have enjoyed hearing so many young singers throughout the region in recitals, at concerts, solo performances in competitions and in choirs of all sizes, so we know there is an abundance of growing talents across the community.
