The Chorale is regarded as the region’s premier choral ensemble and has been performing exceptional choral music for 37 years for local audiences as well as in national and international venues. Members of the Chorale must audition every two years. We seek singers with vocal skill, strong musicianship and a passion for choral music.
The Chorale is a mixed ensemble of approximately 32 singers. We meet on Monday evenings for rehearsal between September and June, with additional rehearsals required during performance weeks.

These can be completed electronically and emailed to Dr. Bartel at email@example.com or printed and brought to your audition.
You will be required to sing a song or aria of your choice that demonstrates the quality of your voice and musicianship. Your selection should be approximately 2-3 minutes in length, or if it is longer, you may be asked to perform a portion of the piece. An accompanist will be provided.
You will also be asked to vocalize to demonstrate range and aural/sight-singing skills. The audition will last about 7 minutes. The Wichita Chamber Chorale Artistic Director and Personnel Manager will be considering the following when determining membership:
- Vocal amplitude and endurance
- Vocal range
- Ability to be flexible with vocal color/weight (eg. vibrato vs. minimal vibrato/straight tone)
- Performance demeanor and communication abilities
- Sight-reading and aural skills
- Record of exemplary performance and commitment in choirs and musical activities
