Singer Auditions for 2022-2023

The Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh is the chorus of choice of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and as such we hold ourselves to the highest musical standards.  All members are expected to be able to read music and sing expressively, in tune, and with a tone quality appropriate to choral music.   If you are a choral singer we encourage you to audition!

There are two categories of membership, Volunteer and Professional Core.  All members are expected to prepare their music before each rehearsal.  Members of the Mendelssohn Choir are encouraged to sing the full complement of concerts in any given season.  A listing of concerts for the upcoming season will be available at your audition appointment.

Please contact Chorus Manager MaryColleen Seip via E-mail (mcseip@themendelssohn.org) or by phone (724-263-5259) about the audition process.

Note:  For the 2022-23 season, The Mendelssohn Choir requires all singers and staff to be fully vaccinated, and have received a booster shot.  You will be asked to present proof of vaccination via photo or scan should you be accepted into the choir.
