The singers of BCS rehearse each Tuesday night (September-May) from 7-9:30pm, with additional orchestra rehearsals as concert dates draw near.

Auditions for new singers, subject to available openings in each section, are held in early September at the beginning of each season.  Auditions for the 2016-2017 season have already taken place.  Any singers who did not audition and are interested in singing with Bloomington Chamber Singers should check this site in early January for possible opening in mid-year, or drop an email to Gerry Sousa, the group’s Artistic Director, at gerry@gsousa.com.

Singers interested in auditioning should have demonstrated experience in choral groups, have sung repertoire in a variety of languages in addition to English (typically Latin, German, and/or French), be able to follow a choral score, and be able to read a simple chorale or hymn. In addition, singers should be familiar with the basics of vocal production and techniques of singing in a choral ensemble. Singers are encouraged to bring a prepared piece to sing, although that is not required; an accompanist will be provided.

In the meantime, feel free to download and listen to a few samples from our recent performances, all recorded live in concert:
