Keeping with our mission of teaching, singing, learning, Camerata Singers began the Camerata Futures program, which brings in auditioned students from area high schools to sing with the group for our March concerts. If you are, or know of, a student with a talent for singing please contact our conductor, John Koza. Auditions are held in December to sing with the chorus from January through March culminating in our March performances. Students need the consent of their music teacher or administrator and parent(s) or guardian.


Students rehearse with Camerata Singers each Tuesday evening for approximately 9 weeks. This schedule starts with the first scheduled rehearsal in January. The program culminates with weekend performances the first or second weekend of March.


Rehearsals begin at 6:45pm and end at 9:00pm in Salinas, and include a day-long singing retreat (rehearsal) one Saturday in February. See downloadable form (below) for specific dates.
