Joy. Family. Belonging. These are just some of the words our singers use to describe our musical community. We hope you’ll consider joining us.
Audition registration is open now! We are hosting online auditions on Wednesday, January 4, and in-person auditions on Saturday, January 7. Read more about the audition process and reserve your time using our audition form. We can’t wait to hear from you!
In the meantime, if you have questions about auditions or want to know more about Puget Soundworks, reach out to us at [email protected].
Here is some information about being a part of the Puget Soundworks community.
Do I have to be able to sight read to sing with Puget Soundworks?
Nope! Sightreading is a great skill, but not a requirement to sing with Puget Soundworks. We are looking for passionate singers and general musicianship and are excited about bringing together an inclusive singing community.
When and where does Puget Soundworks rehearse?
Regular weekly rehearsals are Wednesdays from 6:30pm-9pm in Capitol Hill in Seattle. Our expectation is that singers will prioritize in-person attendance at rehearsal whenever possible. We also offer Zoom rehearsals as an accommodation (e.g., to participate remotely when a singer is sick or recovering from illness, or traveling, or has a childcare disruption). A full rehearsal schedule is provided to singers after auditions.
What kind of music does Puget Soundworks sing?
We sing an eclectic mix of music from a variety of genres and musical traditions. We are especially focused on including repertoire that is written or arranged by women and people of color.
Do I have to be gay to sing in Puget Soundworks?
Nope! We welcome LGBTQIA+ people and their allies and embrace diversity of all kinds. You do not need to identify as LGBTQIA+ to sing with us.
Is there an age limit for singing in Puget Soundworks?
Does Puget Soundworks require singers to pay dues?
We ask singers to pay dues to support the chorus, but no one is ever turned away for inability to pay. Even though we are currently operating virtually, we still need financial resources to keep the organization going — purchasing music and distribution rights, paying staff, providing technology infrastructure, and so on. Dues range from $25-75, plus the option for any singer to submit a no-questions-asked dues waiver and pay $0. Information about how to pay dues and how to submit a dues waiver will be available roughly one month after rehearsals begin each semester. Again — no one is ever turned away for inability to pay.
