2017–2018 season

If you auditioned for Carmen Florez-Mansi in the fall and sang with the Chorus, you do not need to audition again.

New singers will be auditioning parts of Brahms’ Schicksalslied and Nänie. The portions for auditions will be announced later. These auditions will qualify you for singing in our March and May concerts.

To schedule an audition, please contact The Santa Fe Symphony Office at 505.983.3530. Download the Singer Information Form and bring completed form to your audition.
