Victoria Bach Festival

The Victoria Bach Festival will host auditions for local volunteer singers.

The Victoria Bach Festival welcomes local volunteer singers to audition for the VBF Symphonic Choir, according to a news release.

The choir will sing Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” in C minor on June 13 at the Victoria Fine Arts Center. The “Choral Fantasy” will be performed with piano soloist Anton Nel and the VBF Orchestra, directed by Artistic Director Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez as part of the 45th annual Victoria Bach Festival.

Auditionees should be able to read music and have previous choral experience. All voice parts are welcome, but specific need is for tenors and basses, according to the news release.

To schedule an audition, contact rehearsal conductor David Means at

The audition will consist of singing the first phrase of “America the Beautiful” and some vocalization.

No other preparation is necessary. Rehearsals will be held at Victoria College beginning mid-February.
