These auditions are a process to select those voices and instrumentalists that best portray and give musical expression to the feelings and spirit of those individuals who were closest to the Savior during His atonement, crucifixion and resurrection.
All auditions for the 2018 performances of Lamb of God will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Jewell Building; 6465 W Jewell Ave, Lakewood, CO 80232 (on Jewell just west of the White Fence Farm). There will be a pianist available at auditions for accompaniment.
Those who wish to sing in the choir for Lamb of God are required to audition for, and join the Colorado Mormon Chorale. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 7-9 at the Jewell Building and conclude in May for the 2017-2018 season.
Auditions for the Chorale will be held January 6th (and January 13 if needed), and can be scheduled through the Colorado Mormon Chorale website by clicking on this link: http://www.coloradomormonchorale.org/join.php
Please come prepared to sing one verse of a hymn a cappella. We will then take you through a series of exercises to test range, aural recall, sight singing and rhythm. Well trained singer-musicians with excellent intonation and tone quality will be considered.
Soloists & Narrators
Auditions for soloists and narrators will be held January 6th and 13th, and can be scheduled through the Colorado Mormon Chorale website by clicking on this link: http://www.coloradomormonchorale.org/join.php
