Interested in singing with the Chamber Singers? We usually hold auditions early in August. Also check out member responsibilities to learn what is expected of each member.


Auditions are held at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Iowa City, 2301 E Court St, on the corner of 1st Ave and Court St.

Be prepared for a range check, pitch matching, sight singing, and a bring a short piece (about 1 min) that you can sing a cappella. Our music director David Puderbaugh will conduct the audition with a board member present.

Call (319) 535-0150 or email to request an audition time.

Member Responsibilities

We rehearse Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 pm during our August-May season at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Iowa City. Members are expected to sing for the entirety of the season, participating in all rehearsals and concerts unless special arrangements are made with the Music Director and their section leader.

Each member must provide their own black folder and concert outfit. For men this includes a black tuxedo with black cummerbund and bow tie, and for women a long black ensemble with sleeves.

Annual member dues are $130 for regular members or $80 for full-time university students, due at the first rehearsal. Unless we are able to borrow copies, members are also expected to purchase their music.
