Chora Nova, of which I'm a member, is holding auditions on Saturday, August 25. Singers of all voice types are invited to audition; we're especially looking for more basses.
Our director is Paul Flight, a fabulous all-around musician and singer. Next year's repertory includes Haydn's Missa Sancti Nicolai, a concert of music by women composers, and Brahms's own two-piano arrangement of his Requiem. We have a great rehearsal pianist, Esther Archer.
We rehearse Monday nights in Berkeley, from 7:30 to 10 p.m., at First Congregational Church (aka First Congo). We're a friendly and welcoming group of people, so if you are looking for a chorus, email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how the auditions will be conducted.
