Come sing with us
HCA welcomes everyone of good character, any race, creed or background with a desire to sing solid harmony. Any background with an emphasis on singing is great but not required. Although helpful, the ability to sight-read music is not a requirement for joining - we use pre-recorded learning tracks of our entire repertoire.
Visitors Always Welcome
Ready to give us a shot? Walk-in visitors are always welcome at HCA rehearsals, but please do not plan to audition on your first visit unless arranged with the director beforehand. If you have questions or would like more information about our group, please contact us via Facebook or using the information found at the bottom of our website.
Our rehearsals are held in the Parish Hall at the Church of the Holy Family, 200 Hayes Rd, Chapel Hill, NC 27517.
Below is a map of the Church, where you can park, and where the Parish Hall is.
It's a simple process for anyone who wishes to try out for HCA.
To audition, you’ll be asked to sing several vocal exercises and patterns that will help us determine your range, tone quality, and pitch accuracy & memory.
Then we ask that you learn a barbershop tag, a dramatic variation put in the last section of the song, on your specific voice part which you will sing in either a quartet or VLQ. Our director and music team will be listening for correct words and notes as well as good vocal tone that will determine part independence and how your sound will blend with the chorus. You will be allowed to use sheet music during the audition.
The final decision is made by the director in conjunction with the Music Team.
