Chorus auditions for Palm Beach Opera’s 2024 season will be held on Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1.

The Palm Beach Opera Chorus is one of the region’s leading musical ensembles, comprised of locally-based singers with professional training in classical vocal technique. Auditions are available to singers of all voice types, ages 18 and older. Any interested candidate with the availability for evening and weekend work from November through March is encouraged to apply for this paid opportunity.

Auditions are by appointment only, and applicants must complete and submit the free audition request form prior to March 24th. The form may be found at

For the audition, singers must prepare two classical songs or arias, with at least one in a foreign language, preferably Italian. A pianist will be provided at the audition. For more information, please contact Artistic Administration Manager Kathleen Shelton at 561-835-7553 or

Led by Associate Conductor Greg Ritchey, the Palm Beach Opera Chorus is consistently recognized for its artistic excellence. In recent seasons, South Florida Classical Review has praised the ensemble’s “razor-sharp intonation and glowing, well-blended tones,” and hailed their performances as “superb” and “refined.”
