2021-2022 Season and Auditions Update
We are optimistic that we will be able to return to the Junior Mendelssohn program for the 2021-2022 season at Third Presbyterian Church, pending the COVID-19 situation. At this moment, however, the season will not necessarily look like past seasons, as we work on adapting the rehearsals and the rehearsal space to reflect the current safety guidelines as proposed by the CDC, the PA Department of Health, and the Allegheny Health Department. These adaptations may include the possibilities of socially distanced and virtual rehearsals throughout the season. Please know that we will update this website and send out communications as the situation changes.
We are planning to hold live auditions in the late summer. These dates are tentative, and are subject to change:
August 16, 17, & 18, 2021 from 6-9pm
Third Presbyterian Church
5701 Fifth Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15232
All interested in auditioning must fill out this audition form.
We will also be holding virtual auditions this season.
- Record yourself singing your audition piece, either a capella or with piano accompaniment. Please choose a song from the classical realm, i.e., an art song, opera aria, etc., NOTHING THAT REQUIRES BELTING.
