Audition

The San Luis Obispo Master Chorale is a 120-voice ensemble that performs works for chorus and orchestra.
We give our performances in the 1200 seat Harold Miossi Hall of the San Luis Obispo Performing Arts Center on the Cal Poly Campus.

Sing with the Master Chorale! We welcome new members. Choral experience is preferred but is not a requirement.


Schedule for Spring, 2022


Sorry, auditions have been completed for this season. Our next auditions will be in early Fall, 2022.

For your audition, please be ready with:

A prepared piece: This could be as simple as a hymn. It could be a folk-song, a selection from musical theater, a selection from classical repertoire. Please limit the prepared piece to 3 minutes in length. One verse or 2 to 3 pages is adequate.

A copy of your selection for the accompanist (pianist).  An accompanied piece is preferred to singing a capella.
