BCC has two groups of singers. There is a core group and an auxiliary that typically is brought in for the Winter concert or to perform works requiring a larger sound. Auditions for BCC are held every year in September. Core and auxiliary male and female voices are re-auditioned alternating years. New singers can be auditioned in September, December, or by appointment if required.
Preparation for the audition should include an art song or aria that best demonstrates your vocal range. Foreign language is desirable though not required. You will also be tested for sight-singing ability, melodic repetition, and range.
