Audition for Sierra College Chorus

Have you ever dreamed of being in a full-fledged chorus, dressed impeccably, singing before a glitzy audience?

You can try your luck and audition on July 14 with the Sierra Community Chorus, which starts rehearsing for its fall and Christmas season in August.

Sierra Community Chorus consists of 70 singers from communities around Sierra College campuses.

Rehearsals will take place at the music building on the Sierra College Rocklin campus.

To schedule a time to audition, call Grace Earl at 878-0226 or send an e-mail to For more information about Sierra Community Chorus, visit
