About the Chorale
Comprised of singers from a great variety of occupational backgrounds and levels of training, the choir nonetheless takes their charge of excellence seriously, sharing a passion and avocation for music. The group’s atmosphere encourages continued skill-building in the pursuit of serious musicianship and provides the opportunity to explore a great variety of challenging choral compositions.
Although in residence at First Presbyterian Church, the Tyler Civic Chorale is a secular, unaffiliated arts organization that welcomes singers from any tradition, denomination, or background—a diversity that each season seeks to reflect in its musical selections.
Ready to Join?
Don’t let the audition intimidate you. A brief, 10-minute session with the artistic director includes vocal exercises to assess range, pitch matching, and simple sight reading exercises. No preparation is needed.
Membership requires attendance at weekly rehearsals throughout the season and a dedication to learning your part outside of rehearsal. Main auditions are held in late August before the first rehearsal of the choral season, but entry into the Tyler Civic Chorale is possible at the end of each concert cycle.
