Auditions for the Brotherhood of Harmony chorus are fairly simple and short. They are held in our rehearsal space at DeerGrove Covenant Church, 225 E Helen Rd, Palatine, IL 60067. Here's a Google Maps link for driving directions.
Before the audition please prepare a short song (one verse) to be sung a cappella. For example, we specialize in 4-part harmony songs spanning across the history of American pop music, such as:
The Beatles – Yesterday, Goodnight, Ob-La-Di, When I'm 64
Beach Boys – In My Room, I Get Around, Wouldn't It Be Nice
Buddy Holly – It's So Easy, Everyday
Harry Belafonte – Banana Boat Song, Shake Señora
Electric Light Orchestra – Mr. Blue Sky
Also please rehearse and be prepared to sing the first verse of My Country 'Tis of Thee (through "Let Freedom Ring!").
Our Chorus Director, Brian Cromer, will conduct the auditions. He will ask to hear your prepared song and also have you sing through some exercises to determine your range and place your voice part. Since our style of music consists of four distinct voice ranges, Brian will suggest which section you should initially sing in: tenor, lead (melody), baritone, or bass. Auditions will typically last about 10 minutes.
Before arriving for the audition we ask that you download the audition sheet found at the link below, fill it out, and bring it to the audition.
