Singers who successfully complete the initial audition will be invited to sing with the full ensemble in the first rehearsal of the semester. Formal invitations for membership will be extended based on blend and balance at this rehearsal. Singers may e-mail Music Director Jennifer Kane directly at search@cantilena.org.
