MISSION PEAK CHOIRS INFORMATION & CALENDAR

We’re so glad you’re interested in being a part of our vibrant organization! If you are enthusiastic and willing to learn, we’re certain your voice will add to our community. We offer two different ensembles:

East Bay People’s Choir (EBPC) was created with the intention of making choral music accessible to all. The People’s Choir is a diverse group of singers from all walks of life, backgrounds, and abilities who come to rehearsals united by their joy of singing. The group is free and open to anyone who wants to learn to sing. Music is learned by ear, thus no singing or music reading experience is necessary, and drop ins are always welcome (no audition necessary). People’s Choir rehearsals are Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm at Niles Discovery Church in Fremont, CA. 

 

Mission Peak Chamber Singers (MPCS) is our flagship ensemble, performing choral literature that varies in era, region, language, and style in three concerts a season. This group of enthusiastic singers learns repertoire mostly from sheet music, and are joined by their commitment to the choral art, and their dedication to raising their voices in community. Choir experience and good sight-reading are a plus. Dedication and passion are a must! Chamber Singers does require an audition, after you sit in on a full rehearsal. Chamber Singers rehearse Tuesdays from 8:30-9:30pm at Niles Discovery Church in Fremont, CA.

 

Auditions: Fear not! The audition is an opportunity for you to get to know the Artistic Director, Dr. Corie Brown (she/her), and for her to get to know you. You will be asked to prepare a short excerpt of a piece you like to sing (it can be any genre, style, and just one verse). You will also be asked to sing a line of a piece we sang in rehearsal, as well as do short sight-singing and audiation exercises. Our audition process is relaxed, and looks more like a coaching session! We invite new singers for Chamber Singers at the beginning of our Season (in August) and then at the beginning of our second Spring Cycle (in January). 

 

Please contact Artistic Director Dr. Corie Brown at info@chambersingers.org to schedule a time to sit in on a rehearsal, to schedule an audition for Chamber Singers, or with any questions!
