Choir Auditions, 2021–2022
The Church of the Atonement seeks to audition singers for all voice parts (SATB) for the 2021–2022 choral season. Permanent positions are open in the Schola, as well as positions on the sublist.
The season begins Oct. 1 and ends on Corpus Christi (June). Christmas Eve midnight Mass and Holy Week/Easter are required. Excellent skill in sight reading and the desire to sing in a chamber ensemble are of utmost importance. Extensive choral experience is necessary.
Rehearsal begins Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. for the 11:00 Mass. There are no weeknight rehearsals. Additional rehearsals may be scheduled throughout the year, but prior notice will be given. Additional calls for weddings, funerals, and evensong services are available throughout the year. All professional singers are paid $100 per call.
The Schola of Atonement is a professional chamber choral ensemble that sings liturgical music spanning several centuries including Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, Viennese classical masses, Anglican cathedral music, and contemporary composers. The choir sings a choral setting of the Mass Ordinary, Anglican chant, motets, anthems, and propers weekly. It is a demanding and rewarding professional ensemble.
Atonement is a parish within the Diocese of Chicago. We are in the Edgewater neighborhood on the North side of Chicago, and the church is easily accessible by train and bus.
