Auditions

The Guinness Choir is an amateur mixed choir with professional standards. We love to have new singers join us and, having over 100 active singing members, there is normally some room for extra voices in all parts.

While it is important that you have a good singing voice, can hold a tune and sustain the pitch of a note, we do not expect you to be a trained sight-reader or an experienced chorister. Perhaps your most important attribute will be to have an enthusiasm to sing great choral music.

We normally hold auditions at the end of August each year at our rehearsal venue, The Education Centre, Our Lady’s Hospice, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 6. We may also hold additional auditions in January. At audition our Musical Director, David Milne, will have an informal conversation with you, ask you to sing a piece of music of your choice and may go through scales to determine your position in the choir.

Please contact our Choir Secretary, Valerie Lang, via email at guinnesschoir@gmail.com and she will be delighted to complete the arrangements with you. We look forward to meeting you then. The very best of luck. Links to further details are available here regarding Membership, Rehearsals and Why Join The Guinness Choir.
