Do You Love to Sing? Come sing with the Lubbock Chorale!
The Lubbock Chorale, a 100-member faculty, staff, student, and community choral group, will accept new members for the Spring season 2018. Audition Tuesday, January 23, 2018. Email john.hollins@ttu.edu or call 778.4980 to schedule a nonthreatening musical interview.

The Lubbock Chorale (TLC) is the oldest choral arts organization of the South Plains as well as a choral ensemble of Texas Tech University, and therefore is comprised of community members (a majority) and TTU students, staff and faculty. TLC meets once a week on Tuesday nights, ?7:30-9:30 p.m.??????????? in the choir hall (room M010) of the TTU School of Music. For more information on The Lubbock Chorale, please visit www.lubbockchorale.org. The primary musical mission of the Chorale is to prepare and perform art-music masterworks of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary periods.

Auditions for this season will be held at the TTU School of Music ?on January 23, 2018??????????? working backward ?from 7pm???????????. Auditions for the Chorale consist of you bringing in a brief solo (pianist provided) that best shows the natural qualities of your 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). The solo can be as simple as “Happy Birthday,” “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” or a hymn. Members may choose to not participate in any particular concert cycle (see below) but there are rehearsal attendance requirements for each performance.

Please consider joining us for our remaining Spring concerts! Following is an overview of the 2017-18 season’s concerts:
