Our mission is to attract individuals who share a love of music, dedication to musical growth, and the desire top provide excellence in performance.

We encourage you to attend one of our open rehearsals to sing with the choir as it is important for you to experience the atmosphere of the group.

2019 Spring Rehearsals are January 14th, 21st and the 28th.

Rehearsals are held weekly on Tuesdays at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church 1920 W. Glenoaks Blvd., Glendale, CA 91201

Auditions will begin at approx. 8:30 p.m. following each rehearsal. You will audition in front of our Audition Panel:

  • Mikhail (Misha) Shtangrud, Artistic Director

  • Dr. Anna Krendal, Accompanist

  • Thomas Safer, Membership Director

  • (additional members of the Board of Directors may be present)

You will be asked to perform an audition piece that demonstrates your vocal abilities. You may bring sheet music and/or a recording of the accompaniment for your piece. You will also be asked to perform vocal exercises at the direction of the Artistic Director and discuss any prior choral experience you may have.

You will be notified either in person or by email whether you've been accepted to join our group. You will have the opportunity to audition for solo parts once you are a member.

There are two semesters per year:

  • Spring begins January and ends with our April concert.
