Greenbrier Valley Chorale auditions set

The Greenbrier Valley Chorale will hold auditions for its annual Christmas concert from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Sept. 3 and from 10:30 a.m. to noon Sept. 7.

Auditions will take place in the Green Room adjacent to Hamilton Auditorium in Carnegie Hall, 105 Church St., Lewisburg. No appointment is required.

The Chorale is directed by Barbara Lutz and accompanied by Teresa Bryant. It is a volunteer community chorus made up of men and women ranging from advanced high school students to retirees. Its repertoire ranges from classical choral works to folk tunes, spirituals and Broadway favorites.  

Auditions are brief and private. Some prior choral singing experience is required. Anyone who has been a member of the group in the past but who has not sung since the 2010-11 performance season is asked to audition again.

The Greenbrier Valley Chorale presents two concerts each year, the first at Christmas and the second in May. This year’s Christmas concert will be at 3 p.m. Dec. 8 at Carnegie Hall.

The group will perform the same program at 2 p.m. Dec. 22 at Tamarack.

The first rehearsal will be at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10 at Carnegie Hall. Rehearsals thereafter will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays.

If you are unable to attend either audition session but would like to try out, contact Lutz at 304-645-6892 or e-mail to schedule an alternative time.
