We want to make sure that our audience feels entirely safe and comfortable coming to our concerts.  Although the prospects for a Christmas concert are uncertain, it is tentatively scheduled in December, subject to Santa Cruz County health guidelines.  We are also hopeful that we will be singing again in May of 2021.

With that in mind those dates would be:
Dec. 19 and 20, 2020, and May 29 and 30, 2021.

Internship Program

Internships with the Santa Cruz Chorale

Although we are not currently rehearsing, our Internship Program will be alive and well when we resume.  Apply now if you are interested.  We will contact you when we begin rehearsals.

Come sing with the Santa Cruz Chorale! We offer four internships each concert season to students, one intern position for each voice part. Internships with the Santa Cruz Chorale offer many benefits and opportunities to young singers:

  • Experience and learn from the conducting of Maestro Christian Grube, Professor Emeritus, Berlin University of the Arts
  • Learn masterpieces of the repertoire: Monteverdi, Purcell, Bach, Mendelssohn, and many other Renaissance, Baroque, and Romantic works, as well as modern and contemporary works by Britten, Lauridson, Pärt, and others.
  • Perform with experienced singers, renowned soloists, and a professional orchestra in the beautiful acoustics and setting of Holy Cross Church in Santa Cruz

Internship applicants should meet the following standards:

  • be a student between the ages of 16 and 25
  • have choral and music-reading experience
  • pass an audition with Maestro Grube (sight reading and vocalizing)

Interns are expected to comply with general policies and procedures for singers of the Santa Cruz Chorale. However, interns are not expected to pay dues. Interns will be provided with all music for performance free of charge. They will also be given special recognition in the program at the May concert.  In addition, interns are offered a scholarship of $100.
The concert season, featuring three concerts, begins in December with “Christmas with the Chorale;” in March the Chorale hosts an out–of-town choir for a guest concert, and also joins them for several works; the final concert of the season, with orchestra and soloists, is in May.

Weekly rehearsals begin in September, and are held at Peace United Church of Christ, 900 High St., Santa Cruz, 7 – 9:30 PM Monday evenings. (Don’t hesitate to apply, even if you have missed some of the first rehearsals.)

Although we are not currently rehearsing, our Internship Program will be alive and well when we resume.  Apply now if you are interested.  We will contact you when we begin rehearsals.
