St. Cecilia Chamber Choir, an auditioned community chorus that rehearses at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings at St. Andrew’s Church in Newcastle, is holding auditions for all voice parts. The choir performs a variety of challenging repertoire under the direction of Linda Blanchard, accompanied by Sean Fleming. Singers wishing to audition should have good vocal control, and sopranos and altos should be able to sing without vibrato. The ability to read music is preferred, but those who cannot read may participate by spending extra time learning the music at home with the aid of provided practice materials. To schedule an audition, email director Linda Blanchard at or call 380-2768.
