Singing City Choir is now holding auditions for its 2020-21 season.  Auditions are held by appointment. Call the Singing City office, (267) 519-5322, or you may request an audition online by filling out an Audition Request Form.


COVID-19 Update

The Choir will continue to meet on Tuesday evenings from 7-8 p.m. via Zoom, beginning September 8. Please consider joining our community of singers.  Auditions will be by appointment with our director via Zoom or other virtual means. Complete the Audtion Request Form and we will be in touch to schedule your audition. Read below for information that will be in  effect once we are able to rehearse again in person.


Audition Requirements: One classical solo work of your choice that demonstrates your vocal range (art song, oratorio or aria, or your voice part of a choral anthem).  Our Artistic & Music Director will accompany you; please provide a copy of your solo. The audition will also cover sight-reading, tonal memory, and vocal range exercises.


Please consider joining us if you:


  • Live within weekly traveling distance of Philadelphia (50 miles or less)
  • Can sight-read music
  • Have prior choral experience (please describe to us)
  • Are not seeking professional promotion.  We have received many requests to promote aspiring professional vocalists.  We wish you the best of  luck in your endeavors, but we are a volunteer community and are only seeking volunteer singers for membership in our group.


Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings from 7:20 to 9:50 p.m. at Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street, Philadelphia, PA.  There are occasional Saturday "all-day" rehearsals, usually before a major performance. Regular attendance and promptness are vital. Participation in community outreach activities and all concerts is expected.


Audition Parking

Discounted parking is available on the east side of 15th Street, between Race & Cherry Street.  Take your parking ticket with you, and ask the Friends Center receptionist to stamp it for the validated parking rate of $15.00. Parking at the evening rate of $5 is available two blocks from Friends Center.
