What will I be asked to do during the audition?

Since the Choir cannot sing in-person this coming semester, will they continue to rehearse and perform?
The Liturgical Choir will continue to rehearse each week in a virtual online format, prepare recorded choir music for the Masses and perform a year-end Virtual Concert in April to be shared on social media. In addition, the choir will participate in a retreat, outreach opportunities and hold social gatherings.
