Auditions for the Quintessential Vocal Ensemble 2022-2023 season will be held every Sunday and Monday throughout the month of August in person and virtually. Applicants may instead opt to submit a passage of a song that best showcases their vocal range and sound. Those who choose this option will be subject to a call back audition prior to admission. 


Applicants will be contacted by email to arrange a time to audition. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age as of December 31, 2022. Previous musical experience and ability to read music are assets. 


The audition process is short and informal. We want a chance to get to know you a little, as well as hear you sing. A typical audition will involve a vocal range check, an aural skills exercise, and sight-singing a passage of choral music to gauge reading level and vocal blend. All applicants will be notified of results within 3 days following the audition date.


QVE's annual membership fee is $250, payable in two instalments of $125 in October and February. A limited number of bursaries are available to assist with the cost of fees, and may be requested based on financial need upon successful admission to the choir.

Thanks! Audition Form sent.
