Experience or other requirements

Choral experience is preferred. Ability to read music is a plus, but it's OK, if you have a good ear for learning your part. All music for our performances is memorized and for some numbers we may add simple choreography and props. Singers must have good stage presence and the ability to emote

Profile The Amador Choraliers began in 1963 and has been entertaining the Foothill communities ever since. The group memorizes all their music and entertains their audiences with occasional props and choreography. Rehearsals are from mid-January to May for the spring concert series and early September to December for the Christmas concert series. Each concert series has three concerts, two in the evening and one matinee. The concerts appeal to a wide audience as they include many genres of music, such as blues, jazz, gospel, country, classical, Big Band era, rock and roll, and folk. They also may include music from Broadway, the movies and television.  Though it is a mixed chorus, concerts also include the Womenís Chorus, Menís Chorus, small ensembles, solos, duets, etc.
