St. Cecilia Chamber Choir is holding auditions for all voice parts. St. Cecilia is an auditioned community chorus that rehearses on Wednesday evenings at St. Andrew’s Church in Newcastle. The group will resume rehearsals on January 16 in preparation for concerts on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5. The concerts will feature choral favorites such as Gustav Holst’s “6 Choral Folksongs,” Op. 36; Morten Lauridsen’s setting of the Rainer Maria Rilke poem “Dirait-On”; works by Ned Rorem, and more. Sopranos and altos should be able to sing with a straight tone, and all singers should have a finely tuned ear and be eager for a challenge. Practice materials are provided for learning music at home. To schedule an audition, contact director Linda Blanchard at or call 380-2768.
