Join One of the Bay Area’s Premier Chamber Choirs
Consider joining a happy, innovative, 20-voice chamber choir that excels in eclectic programming and exciting and refined performances of (mostly) a cappella repertoire.
The San Francisco Choral Artists are the ensemble of choice for many audiences, composers, and singers, performing diverse and beautiful concerts that feature newly commissioned American works, contemporary compositions, and the best choral music of the last 600 years from around the globe. (Listen to some examples…)
With 35 seasons of experience, over 300 world premieres, excellent critical reviews, two Chorus America awards for adventurous programming, and a fine artistic director, SFCA can offer you the joy that comes from singing in a chamber ensemble with other talented, dedicated, and friendly singers.
Talented singers are encouraged to contact Artistic Director Magen Solomon throughout the year, however most auditions occur June through August.
Singers Should Have:
- Extensive choral experience
- Solo potential
- Excellent reading and musicianship skills
- Dedication to the art of chamber singing
To be considered, all singers must be fully vaccinated, and past the 2nd week following the final shot.
Most Monday evenings, from 7-10 PM, in San Francisco (free parking and public transport accessible)
