On the heels of the company’s triumphant 60th Anniversary Season, Palm Beach Opera embarks on an exciting 2023 Season which will feature the Chorus prominently in Giacomo Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly,” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Così fan tutte,” and the company premiere of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Falstaff.”
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 April 1st. The form may be found at pbopera.org/chorus/auditions.
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.

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.”
Palm Beach Opera is dedicated to producing live opera at an international standard of excellence, to enriching the life of the communities it serves with a diverse offering of educational programs, and to training the next generation of opera stars. Founded in 1961, the fully professional Palm Beach Opera presents main stage performances at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach and is a proud member of OPERA America and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.
