The Ball State University Choral Department invites all students, no matter your major, to participate in our ensembles. University Choral Union, Statesmen, and Women’s Chorus do not require an audition – simply register for the course!

Chamber Choir and Concert Choir audition dates, times and course registration numbers are listed below. Please sign up to audition as soon as you are on campus - the earlier the better. There are a limited amount of audition slots available once classes begin. To schedule an audition, please sign up on the choral bulletin board outside of MIB 128 in the weeks preceding each semester.

Auditions will consist of vocal exercises, pitch memory, rhythm and accompanied sight-singing exercises. You may also be asked to sing a song that is familiar to you, such as “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”. It is not necessary to bring a prepared piece.

Can’t make it to an audition? Contact us and we will make appropriate arrangements.
