The Motet Singers—a women's a cappella vocal ensemble

Are you interested in auditioning for the Motet Singers? As of October 2018, we are currently accepting applications for new singers. Auditions for upcoming positions will be announced later this year.


Members are expected to be able to sight-read, and to be comfortable singing multi-part music in a number of foreign languages. Previous experience singing in a small ensemble is highly desirable, as are training in music and/or voice.  Strong musicianship skills, the ability to blend and control vibrato, and good intonation are all important.


Auditionees will be asked to sight-read (both alone and with the ensemble), sing a piece with the group that has been prepared in advance, and perform one solo piece, preferably a simple folk or art song.



If you are interested in auditioning, or have questions, please contact Cialin Mills-Ostwald at or (541) 726-5772.
