What are the qualifications for paid chorus positions?
Date: March 9, 2015
I'm a long time choral singer who has been taking voice lessons for a few years, and I'm curious about what it takes to get a paid position in a chorus. I would like to make some extra money and it would be fantastic to get paid for singing. But I have no idea if I'm good enough. Basically, how good do you have to be? How competitive is it? I consider myself a pretty good choral singer and I'm good at sight reading and singing in various languages. I have lots of instrumental experience as well. I'm really a mezzo, but I've been singing alto in groups. I live in the DC area.
