The only students who MUST audition for choral ensembles are BSOM Vocal Majors (BM and BA) and any other student interested in being placed in Concert Chorale. University Chorus is open to any student discipline without an audition.
Auditions for the Texas Choirs will take place August 18th – 20th, 2022 for students interested in being placed in Concert Chorale and for all Butler School of Music students with vocal emphasis in their major (BM and BA). Auditions will consist of vocalization for range, pitch and rhythm matching, sight-singing, and each student will perform 30-seconds of a song that represents their voice well.
Non music majors need not audition for choirs unless they are interested in being placed in Concert Chorale – University Chorus is open to any student discipline without an audition and all members will be heard and assigned voice parts during the first week of classes.
Auditioning students should visit The Ensembles Page to read about the different choirs offered at the Butler School of Music.
