Build community, celebrate pride, and empower authenticity with your talent!

We are a TTBB choral ensemble in its 37th season specializing in “choral theater” productions attached to our mission of singing for a world of love and acceptance.

Interested in singing with Heartland Men’s Chorus?

NEW SINGER AUDITIONS

Audition during a “pre-season” in-person audition, or join us for an open rehearsal! Here’s how you can audition to become a member:

IN-PERSON AUDITIONS

Sunday, January 8th, 2023 

at First Lutheran Church, 6400 State Line Rd, Mission Hills, KS 66208. Check back to sign-up starting December 1st, 2022.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination (Mask for rehearsals).
  • Artistic Leadership will be looking to see if you possess the following singing skills: matching pitch, ability to sing harmony, aural recall, a basic understanding of rhythm, and the ability to take feedback. They’ll as about your musical background (high school, college, church, professional, just the shower, etc.), how you heard about HMCKC, and then they’ll check your vocal range to assign you to Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone, or Bass.
  • You’ll be asked to sing an excerpt of a song you can demonstrate confidence, something you’ve prepared or performed in the past (please make sure to provide a copy of music for our accompanist), or something as easy as Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Amazing Grace, or any other simple traditional song. You do not need to be able to read music to be a part of Heartland Men’s Chorus- only the intrinsic motivation to continue to build on the basic required skills as a singer/musician.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Artistic Director at shawn@hmckc.org.

OPEN REHEARSALS

Join us for open rehearsals on Tuesday, January 10th, and Tuesday, January 17th at Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral from 6:30p-9:30p for Season 37’s first main stage production After All: 60 Years of CHER
