Auditions


Cape Town Camerata (formerly: Cape Town Youth Choir) is always looking for true “choir geeks” to join us: singers who strive to “acquire Kung Fu” and who wish to be part of a group of like-minded people.

The choir will be limited to 40 singers for the 2024 tour to Spain.


Before you audition, consider this:

We are at the start of a journey that will take us to Europe in the second half of 2024. Members that join now must commit to this journey.

CTC currently practices twice a week in the City Bowl (not far from Parliament Buildings); on Tuesday evenings and on Friday evenings (6:30pm till 8:30pm). Once the note-bashing porting of this season’s repertoire set has been completed, the current rehearsal schedule could be reconsidered.

A solid fundamental knowledge of music theory is essential. The minimum requirement is a pass rate of 80% on this online practice test (Select Grade1 exam.)

New choir members might be asked to complete a similar written test at one of their first rehearsals. (There are loads of free online resources where singers can download information to improve their theory skills, e.g. here, here and here.)

New choir members must commit to:

  • attending rehearsals
  • learning some music at home so that they come to each rehearsal with a reasonable amount of preparation
  • Improve their sight-reading skills
