The Oriana Consort seeks 4 tenors and 4 basses. Audition appointments are available in early September. Sunday evening rehearsals in Harvard Square start September 14, 2014 for three December performances that will begin the group's Twentieth Anniverary Season. Program: Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, Handel’s anthem Let God Arise, and works by Byrd, Rutter, Howells, and Warlock.

The Oriana Consort is an accomplished semi-professional chorale of 32 voices, with an eclectic repertory, enthusiastic audiences, and a warm, attractive sound. Listen online to samples from recent concerts. Soloists are always Oriana members. We seek good-to-excellent readers with clear, center-of-the-pitch voices that work well with the group.

To arrange a half-hour audition, please email Walter Chapin at, summarizing your choral and solo singing experience. For your audition you will join a quartet of members to read excerpts from our recent repertory, and to sing a challenging but brief choral part that will be available for advance preparation. Please also bring a solo of your choice.
