SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

The Salisbury Symphony plans to form a chorus to engage a wider number of community members in the organization's musical endeavors. 

"The Chorale will give six concerts over the next two seasons, working with six different directors, one of whom will be chosen the Chorale Director, commencing the position for the 2019-20 season," the Salisbury Symphony said Monday. 

The chorale's first concert will be held at St. John;s Lutheran Church on Sept. 23. The second concert of the season will be the Christmas sections from Hadel's Messiah. Those dates have not yet been confirmed.

Open auditions for singers are being held the evening of Monday, Aug. 7 at the First United Methodist Church of Salisbury. Those interested are asked to contact Hunter Safrit, the chorale coordinator, at hsafrit@gmail.com on or after Monday, July 17. 

"Singers are asked to prepare a short song that shows their voice quality, pitch, and musicality. It should be with piano accompaniment which they should bring," the Salisbury Symphony says. 

Those who are not available on Aug. 7 are asked to contact Safrit and set up an alternate date. 

Six rehearsals for the first concert will be held on two Monday and Tuesday evenings beginning Aug. 21, and the final two rehearsals will be held on Sept. 22 and Sept. 23.

Choral directors who are interested are asked to submit a one-page letter of interest with a resume to the Salisbury Symphony, Att: David Hagy, P.O. Box 4264, Salisbury, 28145.
