Voice Hearings

The Downers Grove Choral Society is always eager to welcome new singers! Our members have a wide range of musical experience, from high school and university choral programs to church choirs to professional engagements. If you share our love for making choral music together, discovering new repertoire, and meeting new friends, please join us this season!

 
Voice hearings are required for new members and can be scheduled throughout the season. Voice hearings for our fall concert, King David, will be held on August 22nd and 29th at the Indian Boundary YMCA in Downers Grove. Rehearsals for King David begin on August 29th.
