Canterbury is always interested in adding new voices. Previous choral experience and an audition are required. The audition will include vocal exercises for range, a brief sight-reading piece, and a prepared piece— anything which demonstrates the singer's vocal quality, diction skill, and musicality. Rehearsals are open to prospective singers, and are held September-May on Monday evenings at the Church of the Heavenly Rest, Fifth Avenue at 2 East 90th Street, New York, NY from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm.
