Chorus & Auditions

Festival Opera Chorus

The Festival Opera Chorus is made up of accomplished singers who play a crucial role in the success of our productions. Our chorus performs in our mainstage productions, Opera in the Park, an annual chorus concert, and other special events.


Collaborating with renowned directors and conductors, our chorus members receive elements of vocal training, refinement of stagecraft, and focused work on dance/movement. All these, combined with the deep sense of community and camaraderie we foster makes being part of the Festival Opera Chorus an unforgettable and enriching experience.

Festival Opera holds auditions in the San Francisco Bay Area, and occasionally in other cities across the US. Submissions are considered year round. Live auditions are held twice a year, and by appointment as needed.

- auditions have been put on hold during the COVID pandemic, and will resume as soon as it is safe.
