Become a Member of Masterworks Chorale

The continuing growth of Masterworks Chorale brings opportunities to sing the world's greatest choral music with a finely tuned choir and orchestra. We invite singers in all vocal ranges to audition.

Like Masterworks rehearsals, this easy-on-the-ego audition is designed to support singers in bringing out their best capabilities. Though much of the music we perform is quite challenging, we strive to keep our organization supportive and our work enjoyable. To minimize the all-or-nothing feeling sometimes associated with auditions, bear in mind that Masterworks often accepts new members on a provisional basis, so that singers prove their ability to sing the repertoire over a number of rehearsals.

Audition Schedule

Rehearsals are Monday nights at 7:00 at transfiguration episcopal church, San Mateo in the sanctuary. All auditions are also held at the church. Please fill out the Audition Request Form below to schedule an audition. If you have further questions contact the Masterworks office by phone, 650.918.6225, or by email at

What to Prepare

For the audition we ask you to:

Sing a prepared song or aria (any style), or your voice part's line in a portion of a standard, classical choral work. Bring two copies of your music, one for yourself and one for accompanist.

Perform sight-singing of short musical excerpts

Repeat back short melodies played on the piano
