Cantilena, the women’s classical music chorale in Arlington, has openings in all soprano and alto sections, and offers auditions at the beginning of both fall and spring semesters.

The audition consists of vocal exercises, tone matching, some sight-reading, and singing a familiar tune. There is no need to call ahead or prepare a piece – just arrive by 7:30.
Members have prior choral experience and either some sight-reading ability or a very good ear. If interested in joining Cantilena, we ask that you attend an open rehearsal, sing with us, and then stay for a brief audition with our music director Jennifer Kane and audition committee.
(Open rehearsals end early to allow time for auditions.)
Fall Concert: Sunday, December 4, 2016. “Winter’s Joy”
Spring Concert: Sunday, May 7, 2017. “Radiant Sister”
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings, including most holidays, from 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM at First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington.
