The 120+ voice Knoxville Choral Society performs small- and large-scale choral works under the direction of Artistic Director Eric Thorson and frequently joins the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
The Knoxville Chamber Chorale, a select group of singers drawn from the KCS, performs more intimate works under the direction of Assistant Director John Orr. Auditions for the Chamber Chorale are open to KCS members and are scheduled by the artistic director as needed.
All singers volunteer their services and are selected by audition. Rehearsals for KCS are held on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30, throughout the concert season. During performance weeks, singers are expected to attend additional rehearsals.
An audition includes the evaluation of:
- Vocal quality
- Tonal memory drills
To schedule an audition you may contact our membership chair by calling (865) 312-2440 and leaving a message with your request and your contact information or by emailing our membership chair.
Our membership chair will contact you as soon as possible.
