Instructions for each venue

Westminster Choir College, Talbott Library
Auditioners should park in the "D lot" at the rear of the school, accessed by two driveways on Franklin Ave. Walk south (direction towards Nassau St./Downtown Princeton). Talbott Library is the big square brick building on the right. If you enter through the basement doors that feed out into the parking lot, the room will be on the same level they are entering on. If you enter through the front of the building (the corner entrance facing the center of the college campus), walk down the flight of stairs in the entrance vestibule and follow signs.

Kimmel Center
Enter at the backstage entrance at 321 South 15th Street. The security guard will buzz you in. Take the elevator on the left up to the second floor (Tier 1). The Rendell Room is on your far right.

Prerequisites for auditioning include: U.S. employment eligibility, previous choral experience, excellent sight-reading ability, and availability to meet the schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact choir@philorch.org.
