A Maha audition usually takes between 15 and 20 min. We look at this as a mutual process where you are also determining whether you feel comfortable with us. There are usually 2 or more Maha members to welcome you, and 2 or 3 Maha members with the artistic director to run the audition part. You will have time to ask questions of us. You will do a vocal warmup with others, and individually you will:
- sight-sing a simple melody (with piano guidance)
- learn one part of a simple choral piece (with Maha members)
- sing at least one verse of a song of your choice a capella (you can have fun with this one, and use it to show us your favourite style of music)
Since this is a choral experience, you are not being judged on having a "solo" voice, but more on ability to blend musically, follow a score and instructions, and be part of a group experience. We look forward to meeting you.
The cost for Choeur Maha membership is $200 a year.
Maha values inclusion of all and believes that the fee should not be an obstacle in trying the audition. Each year, we have a few bursaries to help those who cannot pay the full fee.
Maha also welcomes gender non-binary folks and trans women into our midst--keeping in mind that our repertoire is for soprano and alto voices.
