Sing with CGMCAs a non-auditioned chorus, there is no ‘formal’ audition process but the Artistic Director does conduct a placement audition for a member to perform within an appropriate section. Typically, the candidate will be asked to perform a few basic musical exercises to test vocal range, vocal memory, and sight reading ability. No prepared music or choreography is required. For each concert, there are typically opportunities for solos. During rehearsal time, the Artistic Director will announce the time and place for the solo auditions. Any singing member of the Chorus may try out for these solos. The Columbus Gay Men’s Chorus is a volunteer choral ensemble consisting of singers age eighteen and older who are comprised of gay and straight-allied persons of all ethnicities.
