JOIN US

If you love to sing, and can do so in tune, and think you can hold a harmony part, then why not come and visit us on one of our rehearsal nights and see if you would like to be part of this fantastic vibrant chorus. We will make you very welcome. 
There is no requirement for you to read music or have sung in a group before. We are always in search of more ladies to join us.

Virtual Journey to Membership

Want to join us? We find ourselves in a unique position right now but are enjoying our weekly rehearsals with a lockdown twist. Here’s what the virtual journey to membership will look like!

Step 1: Email info@vocalvibes.org.au so that we can connect with you to tell you a bit more about us, and invite you to a virtual rehearsal!

Step 2:  Prior to our Monday evening virtual rehearsal, we will set up a virtual voice placement appointment with a member of our music team.  This is to give us an idea of your vocal range and type of voice so that we may assign you to one of the four voice parts.

Step 3: Attend a virtual rehearsal! Watch, listen, and participate as much as you like!  If, at the end of the night, you like what you’ve heard and seen, our membership coordinator will discuss the way forward to becoming a prospective member with you. She will give you limited access to our members’ site, which contains the print music and learning tracks for our audition songs, as well as some other helpful information! She will also answer any questions you may have and introduce you to other key chorus members such as your section leader, the finance coordinator and the team coordinator. You’ll then be welcomed into the audition process. 

The Virtual Audition Process:

Second & Third Visit- You will meet virtually with your section leader immediately prior to a rehearsal, or at another agreed-upon time to sing through the audition song 'How We Sang Today'. The section leader will help you to learn the song accurately and offer feedback on anything that needs polishing for your audition.

Fourth Visit – We ask you to record yourself, singing along with a recording of the entire chorus (not using the music). You will then email that recording to your section leader and our director, Henrietta. They will provide you with helpful feedback and information about any areas that you may need to work on. You may set up a virtual meeting with your section leader to work on this feedback, if required. 

Fifth Visit - Immediately prior to, or following, our virtual rehearsal, we will ask you to sing the audition songs with a chorus recording in the background (not using the music), as your audition. This will be in a breakout room with our director, Henrietta, and your section leader. Singing in front of others can be scary at first but remember that we are here to help you learn and we want you to succeed.

Expectations for a Successful Audition:

You are not expected to have perfected the music. 
The music team and director are looking for your overall skill and expressiveness, and your ability to:
find your first note from the pitch pipe cue 

  • sing correct notes, words, and tuning 
  • take suggestions and improve at each opportunity
If the audition shows that your voice is suited to this style of singing and you are ready for the commitment required, you will be invited to join Vocal Vibes Chorus.
 
Come along and see if it’s for you!
