Frequently Asked Questions

If your question is not addressed below, please contact one of the committee who will get back to you as soon as possible.

  1. Is the choir auditioned?
    Yes. Auditions are held throughout the year for potential members. Please email to find out when and where we will next be holding auditions.
  2. How often does the choir rehearse?
    The Oriana Chorale meets every Thursday night from 7:30pm - 10:00pm at University House, on the campus of the ANU.
  3. Is rehearsal attendance compulsory?
    Yes, although we do accommodate members' other commitments be they professional or private. However, as a rehearsal schedule is made available well in advance of concerts, we require that members be able to commit to at least 80% of all rehearsals in order to participate in a concert.
  4. Does it cost anything to be a member of The Oriana Chorale?
    Yes. As with all non-profit organisations, we do ask that members contribute to the upkeep of the choir. Individual circumstances are taken into consideration but, as a general rule, we ask that all members contribute $300 per annum.
  5. What about music for performance?
    All music is provided free for members, however, in some cases scores are also available for purchase where applicable.
  6. Do I need to be able to read music to be a member of The Oriana Chorale?
    Yes. The choir performs to a high standard and so it is expected that members are able to read music and sing at sight. This enables us to spend more time working on interpretation and detail during rehearsal, rather than simply note-bashing.
