General Audition Information
Our audition process is meant to identify singers who: are good fit for the National Lutheran Choir musically and technically; who are able to fully commit to the schedule; who demonstrate a commitment to the highest musical standards. Making music with us is a fun and rewarding experience; however, being an National Lutheran Choir member requires hard work, high expectations, and commitment.
