Looking to audition? Here's what to do:

  • Click on this link
  • Click on the "Log In" button if prompted (this step may not be necessary if you are already logged into WASS), and enter your NetID and password
  • Click on one of the days on the calendar colored orange
  • In the table of times, click on the (+) sign to make an audition appointment
  • Click save to confirm your audition appointment

If there are no open audition slots available on the calendar, please email Chapel Choir conductor Penna Rose (prose@princeton.edu).

We try to keep the audition process as stress-free as possible. Here's a rundown of what you'll need to do:

  • Sing a prepared piece. This can be anything from Schubert to Sia to Steely Dan to the Star-Spangled Banner. We want to get a sense of your voice, so pick a piece you know well!
  • Sightread. Sightreading is an essential tool in the arsenal of any good Chapel Choir singer, and we want to make sure you'll be able to keep up!
  • Pitch memory. We want to make sure your musical ear is good, so we'll play a few notes and ask you to sing them back to us.


There are so many reasons you should join Chapel Choir. Since you've probably been bombarded with advertisements from every campus performance group already, we'll keep ours short and sweet. Here are a few reasons why you should join:

  • No arch is as good as the Chapel.
  • Be a professional singer - $8.40/hour. That's right, every student in the Chapel Choir gets paid to sing!
  • Music mandatory, religion optional. Regardless of your religious and spiritual beliefs, you're always welcome in the Choir.

If any of this has piqued your interest, we'd love for you to stop by the Chapel! Here are a few ways you can find out more about the Choir:

  • Download and read this leaflet.
  • Attend an Open Rehearsal at the Chapel. 
  • Come to the Crumpets in the Crypt reception on Tuesday, September 12 from 3:30-5:00 PM. (We will, of course, be providing crumpets!)
  • Get in touch with Penna Rose, our conductor and Director of Chapel Music at Princeton, or Samone Blair, our president.
