New Member Auditions
Be a part of our musical journey!
Mahalo for your interest in auditioning for the O'ahu Choral Society!
The O'ahu Choral Society is a volunteer, auditioned community chorus with a 25+ year history of choral singing at a professional level. OCS performs regularly with the Hawai'i Symphony Orchestra, independently, and with other musical groups on the island. We are a diverse group with members coming from across the spectrum in age, occupation, cultural background, and location on island.
We presented Carl Orff's Carmina Burana in November of 2022 in partnership with the Hawai'i Symphony Orchestra, and we presented two spring 2023 concerts: Songs of Nature and Praise in March (Chamber Choir) and Music for a Coronation in April (Symphonic Choir). We collaborated with the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa choirs for both spring concerts.
Auditions for new members to join for the 2023-2024 season were already held in August and are now closed. Please complete the inquiry form below to express your interest for the Spring 2024 auditions, which will be held in January.
