Dear Deacon...

Whether you are a beginner who wants to learn to sing, or an advanced musician who wants to contribute to a challenging and fulfilling musical environment, the Wake Forest Music Department has a choir for you!

Auditions are intentionally low-key and relaxed. In the audition you'll find friendly, welcoming faces who are thrilled that you want to sing on the collegiate level. Once you've gotten through the audition process, you'll get to meet and work with some of the best students on the Wake Forest campus.

Keep in mind that most of our singers are non-music majors, so while musical experience is highly desired, we also understand that the same intelligence that got you into one of the best schools in the country will also enable you to flourish in our ensembles.


See our Audition FAQs to the right to answer additional questions you might have about the audition process. Do not hesitate to contact gilliac@wfu.edu (Dr. Gilliam) at any time should you have a question about the Wake Forest Choirs. 

We look forward to meeting you!

There will be NO official auditions, everyone may freely sign up this semester. Once things return to normal, we'll go back to the audition process.

We WILL plan to meet together this fall. Please see the video on the home page to hear from the Director, Dr. Christopher Gilliam.

Though plans are still somewhat tentative, we plan to accommodate as many singers as sign up. We will ADD rehearsal times if necessary. Currently, rehearsal times are as follows:

MW, 3:00-4:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

MW, 4:00-5:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

MW, 5:00-6:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

TTH, 4:00-5:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

TTH, 5:00-6:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

TTH, 6:00-7:00pm, 10 singers/ringers

Handbells do not require phonation, so utilizing them will be safer. They will also provide singers methods to strengthen sight reading and rhythmic skills. 

Singing outside while social distancing and wearing masks is a viable option that we will also utilize. 

We will plan to utilize the semester to get to know each other, build friendships, and build the skills necessary for singing in semesters to come. Join us--it's going to be challenging and fun!
