Audition time is now!
Auditions for our Spring 2020 50th anniversary concert season are available through January 14 by appointment.

Auditions are by appointment with YpM’s Artistic Director, Robert Barney, and take approximately 15 minutes. Formal musical training is not a prerequisite for the younger singers, but some prior musical experience is necessary for admittance to the high school division. Auditions take place at Second Church in Newton, 60 Highland Street in West Newton.
