Women of Song (Fall 2022)

Who is Women of Song?

Women of Song is an inter-generational choir for women.  Started in 2014, it seeks to be a safe, supportive environment for women to achieve a high level of choral singing.  Women of Song is a place to get into or back into singing, learning high-quality repertoire and healthy vocal production.  While it is a place to which choristers can return year after year, Women of Song is also a great place to (re)start your musical education.   It is not just a community choir or a church choir, nor is it exclusively for people who are already skilled at choral singing.  It offers learning opportunities for those who want to get into choral singing, and leadership opportunities to women with advanced skills.

Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 Season

Join us this fall! Women of Song meets Wednesdays from 7 – 9pm at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Highland Park.  All choristers must audition, or re-audition for director, Emily Tiberi.  Auditions can take place in person or over Zoom.  Please sign up for an audition time here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b054dafaf28a7fa7-women.

Scared of auditions? Don’t be! This is a time for the director to get to know your voice and where you might fit best in the ensemble.  If you have worked on solo or choral repertoire before, please feel free to bring a small excerpt. Otherwise, this audition will include vocalization, sight-reading, pitch matching, and pitch memory.
