Hello fans, friends, & family! The Class of 2017 is all moved in to Old Campus, classes have yet to begin, and we all know that means Camp Yale is in full swing! We have a few short concerts coming up this week to advertise the Slavs to a new pool of potential members. Stop by to hear a few songs and sign up for auditions!

The Slavic Chorus will also be participating in a new event which is a joint venture with a variety of instrumental and vocal ensembles on campus to give freshman a taste of all of the musical opportunities on offer. That concert will take place Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 pm, in the Slifka Center Chapel (80 Wall St, second floor). Check out the Facebook event. The concert will feature: Yale Klezmer Band, Coup de Brass, Magevet, Low Strung, Yale Swing & Blues, Tangled Up In Blue, and us, the Yale Slavic Chorus.
Slavic Chorus Auditions
Auditions for the Yale Slavic Chorus are short, fun, and unique. We’ll ask you to warm up with us, perform a rhythm exercise with us, experiment with the volume and tone of your voice, and sing a solo song of your choice that shows off your voice and that you feel comfortable singing. Please feel free to email Justine with any questions you might have. Auditions will take place Saturday, August 31st. After the audition you’ll be informed of the next steps in the process and how our callbacks work. We look forward to meeting with you and singing with you! You can always email our musical director, Justine Cefalu (firstname.lastname@example.org), to secure an audition slot if you cannot attend the Alternative A Cappella Concert.
