2017-2018 Auditions

Canzona is a professional choir of experienced, well-trained singers.  A typical season consists of 2 major concert performances a year, as well as several smaller performances and occasional recording projects. Canzona demands a commitment of time and preparation, and needs to be a singer’s priority.

Canzona usually rehearses on Tuesday evenings, with extra orchestra and dress rehearsals falling during the preceding week and weekend of major concerts.
