Mixolydian Auditions Thursday and Friday

So you’ve been bombarded by people asking you to audition for their a cappella groups. I’m here to ask you to audition for Wesleyan’s only student run chamber choir. If you sang classical, renaissance, gospel or world music in high school (or any other types of choral music that I missed) then this is the group for you!

Auditions will be held in the Chapel Basement:

tomorrow, Thursday Sept. 8 – 4:30-6, and
Friday Sept. 9 – 4-5.

Bring a short solo and some smiles and leave the rest to us.
