The Oriana Consort seeks singers of all voice parts for spring 2015. Sunday evening rehearsals in Harvard Square start January 11, 2015 for three March performances that will conclude the group's Twentieth Anniverary Season. The program includes Bernstein's Chicester Psalms, Byrd's Mass for Five Voices, and Poulenc's Un Soir de Neige.

The Oriana Consort is an accomplished semi-professional chorale of approximately 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 in January 2015, 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.
