Public Invited to Audition for CSU Channel Islands Choir

The CSU Channel Islands Choir invites members of the public to audition for the group’s 10th anniversary season.

Auditions for the campus/community choir will be held by appointment throughout August. Those interested should contact the choir’s instructor, Dr. KuanFen Liu, at 805.278.0375 or [email protected].

Rehearsals begin Monday evening, Aug. 26, and are held each Monday from 7 to 9:50 p.m. in Malibu Hall 140 on the CI campus. All voice types are invited to audition, though there is a special need for tenors and basses.

This semester, the choir will perform Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, the Brahms Requiem with the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra, and other songs of varied styles from throughout the world.

The CSU Channel Islands Choir brings together campus and community members for a diverse weekly class, offered as part of the university’s Performing Arts Program. Led by Dr. Liu, the choir exposes participants to a wide range of musical genres and periods, as well as the opportunity to perform publicly on campus and throughout Ventura County.

Enrolled students do not need to audition to participate in the class but will need to sing for the instructor to determine vocal range and placement. Community members pay a $75/semester administrative fee to participate.

The Channel Islands Choral Association is the choir’s sponsor. CICA is a 501(c)(3) organization that serves Ventura County, bringing music education and performance to the local schools and community. For more information, call 805.484.6601 or click here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
