AUDITIONS FOR THE YEAR 2021/2022

CHORAL WORKSHOP - GENERAL INFORMATION

This singing workshop is a basic course to learn how to sing in a choir, and is the first step to join the main choirs. The workshop usually starts around mid-October and lasts until February, with two weekly meetings at 7-9 pm; at the end of the course there are auditions for those interested in joining the regular choirs: Mixed choir, Women’s choir and Chamber Choir.

If it is your first experience in a choir: that's fine! The workshop is open to everyone, even those with no prior singing experience or the ability to read music. Only a simple audition is required to evaluate your vocal range and assign you to a section within the choir (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). No need to prepare a song for the audition.

If you already have some experience and read music: perfect! At the Collegium you can keep up with your favourite activity! If you want to apply to join the regular choirs you’ll have to prepare this song in your extension: this will allow the conductors to identify your voice type and decide whether to invite you to join.

We'll respect the safety measure of the Alma Mater; to take part to our activities it is necessary to have the Green Pass.

Workshop participation fees are 15 Euros plus Collegium membership fee for the first semester (see below).

 

Exchange students staying in Bologna only for the second semester of the academic year and have previous choral experience or read music can send an email to collegium@unibo.it with a short description of musical experiences and ask for an appointment to audition.

CHOIR

Choir admission depends on the number of positions available in each section and will be determined by the directors based on each singer’s vocal characteristics and Workshop participation. Priority will be given to university students.

CHAMBER CHOIR

Participation in the Chamber Choir requires an individual audition of two pieces in different styles, assigned by the directors, which the singer must prepare on his or her own. Vocal quality and sight-reading skills will also be evaluated. Auditions are held every year and are open to all chorists.

WOMEN’S CHOIR

Participation in the Women’s Choir requires an individual audition of one piece assigned by the directors, which the singer must prepare on her own. Vocal quality and sight-reading skills will also be evaluated. Auditions are held every year and are open to all chorists.


To participate in the Collegium Musicum you must become an Association member. The annual membership fee is 20 Euros for University of Bologna and Conservatory students and 40 Euros for non-students. Those who participate for just one semester pay half the fee.
