Piedmont Opera is holding general auditions for chorus and comprimario singers for its 2024-25 season and beyond.  Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 11 at Calvary Moravian Church, 600 Holly Avenue.

Piedmont Opera is well known for the excellence of its chorus.  Guest stage directors from far and wide are always impressed by the quality, caliber and professionalism of this ensemble.  Of the chorus’ recent performance in Verdi’s Il Trovatore, they were praised by Joseph Newsom in Voix des Arts, saying “the choristers lent each of their appearances dramatic significance and musical excellence.”

Those interested in auditioning should prepare several selections, preferably from operatic repertoire.  Auditioners will also be asked to sightread a short melody, and read text in several languages.  Please bring sheet music.  A pianist will be provided to accompany.

To schedule an audition, please contact Michele Hartle at with the subject "General Auditions" or call 336-725-7101.
