How You Fit In - Audition

2015-16 Auditions are by appointment at a mutually convenient time with the director. In general, there are an extremely limited number of openings for excellent singers with good sight reading skills. Reservations for an audition time are required and may be made through email to Dr. Anne Matlack, Auditions for the 2015-2016 concert season will be on August 20-22, and September 5-9, in Madison. Depending on the needs of the group, a very small number of auditions may be heard at other times of the year. Auditioning singers will be led through some standard vocalizations to test range, and then some ear-training and sight-singing on upcoming repertoire. A short prepared aria, art song, hymn, folk song or the like is welcome but not required.

There are a limited number of spots (all voice parts, but more in tenor!). We are only accepting strong musicians who are good sight readers. We rehearse on Sunday nights at Grace Lutheran Church, 65 East Main Street in Mendham, beginning Sept. 7.

This year Harmonium looks forward to celebrating Dr. Matlack's 28th year as Artistic Director of Harmonium with four major concerts – held on Dec. 12th at 8:00 p.m. & Dec. 13th at 3:00 p.m.; March 5th at 8 p.m. & March 6th at 3 p.m.; and June 4th & 5th, both at 7:30 p.m. Also included is a full concert by the select Harmonium Chamber Singers in April.

Harmonium also participates in special appearances throughout the year.  Soloists are normally taken from within the chorus's 100-voice membership, over one third of whom are professional musicians and/or music educators.

Harmonium will present four subscription concerts in the 2015-16 season in the Morristown area, and also participates in other events such as First Night Morris in Morristown. Dr. Matlack’s programming provides ample opportunity for the professional, as well as the serious amateur. For music educators seeking continuing education credits, Harmonium Choral Society is a Registered New Jersey Professional Development Provider. Member singers looking for individual or small group experience may audition for solos within the programmed works or audition to join the select 20-voice Harmonium Chamber Singers. Other members who are available during the school day, evenings, or weekends, may volunteer to sing in the Harmonium Outreach Chorus, which performs assemblies in elementary and middle schools, and shows for libraries, and retirement homes.
