Naya runs dynamic and challenging choirs of an exceptional choral standard. Each December we look for passionate and skilled musicians to be part of the coming year-long season.
If you are interested in being contacted about auditions for future Naya seasons, please register your details.
What's in the audition?
There are 3 parts to the audition:
- Sing a solo piece of your choice. The piece can be in any style. You can sing unaccompanied, accompanied (by yourself) or you can bring a backing track. If you choose the latter, please make sure there are no other lead vocals on the track.
- Sing a duet chosen by us with one of the audition panel. You can download the duet here.
- Sight reading.
Many Naya choristers will tell you that rehearsals are the highlight of their week. They're fun, challenging and full of laughs. That being said...
We consider rehearsals to be sacred. Naya aims to run outstanding ensembles and rehearsals are the foundation on which everything about the choirs sits - musically, culturally and organisationally. Please consider your commitments for the coming year. We expect that if you are offered a place and accept it that you are committed to being at every rehearsal, rain or shine. The only exception is if you have a performance with another group.
By default, Naya performs all music from memory. This means that on a weekly basis you will be assigned memorisation homework that must be completed for the following week's rehearsal. If you do not know your music by the appropriate time, you will be asked not to perform in the relevant performances.
