Auditions

The Bach Choir of Bethlehem is an all-volunteer choral ensemble. Auditions are held annually in late August. Each singer is asked to sing an aria or hymn of their choosing, as well as to do some sight-reading and vocalization.

In addition to regular choir members, The Bach Choir also accepts several Choral Scholars by audition each season. Choral Scholars are high school seniors who are paired with a Bach Choir mentor and who participate in all of the rehearsals and performances with The Bach Choir. The audition expectations for Choral Scholars are the same as for regular choir members.

2016-2017 Concert Season Auditions:

Thursday, August 25 - 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Tuesday, September 20 - 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

“Being a Bach Choir Choral Scholar has taken me more places than I thought I would go. Not only the exposure to the music of J.S. Bach, but the opportunity to learn and share it with others has been one of, if not the greatest experience of my life here in Bethlehem.”
-Madelyn Dundon, Bethlehem Catholic H.S.

“The Bach Choir was a worthwhile growing experience. The challenging repertoire is just what any dedicated chorister needs to expand their horizons. Plus, it helps when The Choir members and Staff are wonderful people and a blast to hang out with.”
-James Kinyon, Southern Lehigh High School
