Lubbock Chorale Auditions 20-21

The Lubbock Chorale looks for the best vocal talent from the South Plains area. We are a community-based ensemble of about 120 voices. People interested in singing with the Chorale should have some experience singing in choral ensembles, such as high school, college or church choirs. Singers should be able to read music and possess a voice that blends well with others. We warmly welcome inquiries about becoming a singing member of The Lubbock Chorale! Auditions for our 45th season will be held at the TTU School of Music on Tuesday, August 18th & 25th, working backward from 7pm. Auditions for the Chorale consist of a brief solo that the applicant prepares and performs (pianist provided) and that best shows the natural qualities of one's voice; vocalization (guided); and possibly a brief sight-reading/rhythm example or some pitch memory examples (singing back three to four pitches played on the piano). If you would like to schedule an audition, please e-mail Dr. John Hollins at Thank you so very much for your interest in The Lubbock Chorale!

Lubbock's Longest-Running Choral Ensemble

The Lubbock Civic Chorale began in September 1976, following numerous enthusiastic performances by a "sing-along" group during the city’s Bicentennial celebration. That first group was only a handful of singers who had a dream of creating choral excellence on the South Plains. Over the years, the group grew to a viable artistic force in Lubbock, partnering with Texas Tech University School of Music to support the academic and artistic growth and development of students. The Chorale also provides between 10-15 scholarships to music students each year.



"Ever since I became the music director of the Lubbock Symphony, I quickly realized that The Lubbock Chorale was a gem in the community. Every collaboration was expertly led by Dr. John Hollins. Each and every member of the Chorale was a joy to work with and to hear them sing their heart out was inspiring! I am looking forward to many more opportunities to share the stage with them."

"I was a member of the Lubbock Chorale for two years while completing doctoral coursework at Texas Tech University from 2006-2008. My association with The Lubbock Chorale gave me abundant opportunities to grow as a musician – choral singer, soloist, section leader, and conductor. Performing major choral works with an orchestra is one of the unique features of being part of this wonderful ensemble."
