The Oriana Consort seeks one second soprano, one second alto, two first tenors, one baritone, and two low basses to fill its 32-voice complement of 8s-8a-8t-8b. We are preparing for concerts on April 4, 6, and 11 featuring Menotti, Betinis, Elgar, Monteverdi, and Gesualdo. Rehearsals begin on Jan. 12, and are held on Sunday evenings from 6-9 in Harvard Square.

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

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