FSO Announces Additional Audition Dates for New Chorale

Due to the volume of interest with the new Firelands Symphony Chorale, the FSO is holding additional dates for auditions. The added audition dates are: 


  • Where:  Firelands Symphony Orchestra's Office, 334 E. Washington St., Sandusky, OH
  • Time:  6:30pm to 9:00pm


  • Where:  Firelands Symphony Orchestra's Office, 334 E. Washington St., Sandusky, OH
  • Time:  6:30pm to 9:00pm

**Please note that if you are interested in auditioning and neither of these dates work, you should still contact the FSO and we will try to accommodate your scheduling needs.** 

Singers interested in auditioning for the Firelands Symphony Chorale should register to audition with the FSO Personnel Manager Jody Chaffee by emailing her at note2jodyc@frontier.com. You may also contact her by phone at 740.398.7456. 

"It was great to see so many singers coming out to audition for this new chorale," said FSO Executive Director, Laurie Korobkin. "Unfortunately, the two audition days we held earlier this month did not allow enough time to schedule all the vocalists who registered to audition. So we need to open a couple more dates for those singers still needing to audition as well as allow those who could not make the original dates the opportunity to audition." 

The new Firelands Symphony Chorale conducted by Michael Shirtz, is an auditioned choir of singers that serves as chorus-in-residence for the Firelands Symphony Orchestra (FSO) and School of the Arts. The concept of the Firelands Symphony Chorale began in 2015 and with the premier of Mastreo Carl Topilow’s 10th Season with the FSO, the organization is pleased to announce the addition of the Chorale to its concerts and educational programs. Performing classical, contemporary, and American music programming, the Firelands Symphony Chorale provides singers the opportunity for concentrated study, rehearsal, and performance of repertoire as well as educational programs for singers and choir directors to support regional choral ensembles and singing opportunities. The Firelands Symphony Chorale performs with the FSO throughout the season.
