Audition Call to Interested Singers!


The Pacific Shores Master Chorale is holding auditions for its 2017-2018 Season.  

All singers, returning and new, will be auditioned unless individually notified. Auditions will take place by appointment in the evening of Tuesday, September 12 at First Presbyterian Church, 850 Ivywood, Oxnard, CA. Interested singers must be at least 18 years of age and be proficient music readers. Candidates will be asked to vocalize, sing their part from “And the Glory of the Lord” from the Messiah, and demonstrate sight reading ability. Those who have never sung for Dr. Taft will be asked to perform a short, prepared solo (art song, aria, hymn or folk song: no pop or Broadway, please.) A professional pianist will be available to play accompaniments; please bring your sheet music.  A small committee of your fellow choral singers will be on hand, as well as our Artistic Director, Dr. Burns Taft, to insure fair and balanced determinations. Auditions will each take approximately 15 minutes.

Those interested in auditioning for the Pacific Shores Master Chorale should request an appointment either by sending an email to, or by calling (805)620-1000. Our rehearsals take place on Tuesdays from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, Oxnard; the first rehearsal will be September 19, 2017. Feel free to write or call with any questions or concerns as well.
