Sing with Teknologkören!
The spring auditions are over. The next auditions will be held after summer, so check back in here or on our Facebook page to see when the application form is open again!
Do you love singing in a choir? Do you want to develop your music skills, and at the same time get more out of student activities?
Then you have come to the right place! With Kongl. Teknologkören you get the best of both worlds: classic choir with high ambitions and an exciting student life with a community that unites students from all over KTH. We rehearse Thursdays from 18:30 to 21:30 at KTH Campus Valhallavägen.
What to expect at the audition?
At the audition you will meet the conductor of the choir, a board member, as well as four choir members. The audition will take about 10-15 minutes and we will start with a short warm up, followed by a quartet where you will sing Glädjens blomster together with three choir members. After that you will sing a solo piece (either Sommarpsalm, Kristallen den fina or Värmlandsvisan) and if there is time left there will also be a few pitch exercises. You will receive sheet music after you have applied.
What should I prepare?
Your voice in Glädjens blomster that you will perform in a quartet together with three current members of the choir that will sing the other voices. You may practice at home for the voice that you are applying as, but it is not a requirement to know the piece by heart and it is okay to use sheet music.
One of the following solo pieces (choose the song that you feel the most comfortable singing): Sommarpsalm (En vänlig grönska), Kristallen den fina or Värmlandsvisan. You are expected to learn the melody (the soprano voice) in a key of your choice that fits your voice the best. You will sing the first verse of the song, without accompaniment. Using sheet music as support is okay.
Applying for auditions
We accept new members at the start of each semester. This semester we are only able to accept active KTH students. The auditions for the spring of 2023 will take place on January 21st and 22nd. The last day to apply is on Wednesday the 18th of January. When we have received your application we will send you a confirmation e-mail with an allotted time for your audition, as well as sheet music and further information. Make sure to check your junk inbox in case you can't find the e-mail! Please reply and confirm your participation, otherwise you allotted time will go to someone else.
In Teknologkören you are expected to have experience singing in a choir and reading sheet music. You should also have enough time to commit to the choir and to attend rehearsals, concerts and other performances. If this applies to you, you are welcome to apply for an audition. Please fill in this application form!
