Seattle Symphony Community Youth Chorus

Seattle Symphony Community Youth Chorus – Audition Announcement!

Attention vocalists! The Seattle Symphony is looking for vocalists who attend high school in King County to participate in the first ever Seattle Symphony Community Youth Chorus. This unique chorus will perform with the Seattle Symphony in December 2019 and May 2020, working with Seattle Symphony Assistant Conductor Lee Mills and Seattle Symphony Music Director, Thomas Dausgaard. The chorus will also work with composer Angelique Poteat to compose a new work for orchestra and chorus which will be premiered with the Seattle Symphony and Maestro Dausgaard in June 2020. You do not need any prior composition experience to participate.

The chorus will meet weekly and regionally beginning the week of October 13, 2019 through June 2020.
