We want to hear your voice! As a member of one of Lamont's choirs, you can perform great repertoire, increase your musicianship and join a community that shares a passion for singing. All members of the DU community are encouraged to audition for the choirs at Lamont.

Auditions for Lamont Chorale, Men's Choir and Women's Chorus are held the first week of fall classes in the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, room 411. Students may sign up for an audition time by contacting Dr. Catherine Sailer at csailer@du.edu. The audition includes an optional solo song in any style, vocalizing and assessment of aural and sight reading skills. Credits earned through participation in a choir may be applied to the creative expression core requirement.

Auditions for the Spirituals Project Choir and the American Heritage Chorale are held by appointment with the director. A brief vocal interview will determine appropriate placement within these ensembles. For further information, contact Professor M. Roger Holland II at Roger.Holland@du.edu.
