Midnight Messiah Solo Auditions

At the end of every Fall semester the conducting graduate students put on an event known as Midnight Messiah. With a volunteer student orchestra, vocal soloists, and a choir made of those who attend the event, we enjoy a late evening with Handel’s Messiah. This year, we will be holding auditions for all vocal soloists. Please read below for details.

Choral Ensembles

Thanks to all who auditioned to sing in one of our choral ensembles. It was a pleasure meeting you and hearing you sing! The rosters for Chamber Choir, Recital Choir, University Chorale, and Women’s Choir are below. Please check each roster for your name. Dr. Paparo and I tried to accommodate ensemble requests as much as possible, but each singer was placed according to the audition. If you have a schedule conflict, we hope you are able to adjust your schedule so you can sing with us. If not, please join us next semester.

The MinuteMEN’s chorus will not be running this semester. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to audition in Spring. In the meantime, please consider joining Recital Choir or Chorale for the fall semester. Email Drs. Thornton (Recital Choir) or Paparo (Chorale) for more information.

If you missed the auditions, there is still time to audition for one of our choral ensembles. Please contact the instructor to schedule a time to meet early next week.
