Join the Fun

How to Join

The VFC will not be holding formal auditions.  While some musical background helps, interested members will be asked to sing, in order to help us place you in a voice part.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns.  Some of the exercises you may be asked to perform might include:

  • Vocalizing up and down to hear your range and tone. Singers often are placed in specific voice parts based on tone and color of the voice.
  • Memory - hearing a melody on the piano and then singing it back.
  • Basic Sight-Reading
  • Prepared Music - Bring a piece of music that you know, a song, aria, or hymn of your choice. Singers are asked to bring an extra copy of the solo for the accompanist.
