Victoria Civic Chorus holding auditions

David Means, music professor at Victoria College, is the conductor for the Victoria Civic Chorus.

Auditions for the Victoria Civic Chorus are being held through the end of August.

The Victoria Civic Chorus, which is a nonprofit organization of singers from Victoria and surrounding communities, will begin weekly practices on Thursdays at 7 p.m. beginning on Aug. 26. Victoria College students also earn class credit performing with the group.

“The Victoria Civic Chorus and the Choraliers are open to students and nonstudents alike,” said David Means, music professor at Victoria College. “The Victoria Civic Chorus will perform the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah with orchestra in December and another major choral work with orchestra in May. We invite the public to come be a part of this outstanding group.”
