Spring Concert:

Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana Sunday, April 15, 2018, 4:00 p.m. Winthrop University's Byrnes Auditorium, Rock Hill, S.C. 

Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at Westminster Presbyterian Church 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. (Choir Room)

York County Choral Society, York County Chamber Singers:

The York County Choral Society (“YCCS”) is a concert choir devoted to performing large choral works and anthems from all musical periods, as well as contemporary classical selections. The group also performs concert settings of holiday music, patriotic, seasonal choral, and multi-cultural choral repertoire and is accompanied by instrumental ensembles or solo concert artists.

The York County Chamber Singers is a smaller ensemble of 24 – 26 singers that primarily performs a cappella music from all musical periods. Singers in this ensemble practice outside the regularly scheduled rehearsals on “agreed upon” dates throughout the year. They perform on the same concerts with the main group but may perform in separate performances.

Singer Eligibility:

Singers in the YCCS are expected to have medium to advanced music reading skills, an ability to blend their voices with others, and prior singing experience with choral ensembles such as church choirs, college or advanced high school experience.

All vocal parts will be auditioned for both the main group and chamber choir. All singers are expected to have an ability to rehearse independently outside the scope of the rehearsal in some manner.

Audition Process:

The audition process will explore range vocalization, participating in a short check for aural skills and music reading ability, and singing a prepared song (if possible). The audition will be overseen by the director and rehearsal accompanist (the singer does not need to bring an accompanist but may do so if desired).

Rehearsal Schedule:

Rehearsals will be held on Thursday evenings (Westminster Presbyterian Church) from 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. The Spring Concert will be Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. at Winthrop University's Byrnes Auditorium in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
