Interested in singing with us? Tapestry Singers is a wonderful mix of professional and highly skilled amateur singers. Please contact us to arrange an informal audition for our next semester.
The simple process to join includes an informal audition with our Music Director to check voice range and music-reading skills. Our singers have a variety of backgrounds in musical training. We commit to practicing outside the weekly rehearsals to learn our music using the practice tracks that are provided. We work hard at rehearsals, but also have fun in the process. Tapestry Singers’ audiences have come to expect something out of the ordinary, new music to challenge their sensibilities, and familiar tunes that are interestingly arranged.
Here’s what you need to know – this is about our current semester and will give you an idea of what to expect in future semesters:
