The Wellesley Choral Society is gearing up for their 67th annual season with open chorus tryouts this month.

The chorus is a no-audition group, meaning the tryout dates are more of an open rehearsal for anyone who might be interested in singing in the chorus, according to the group's website.

The 55-member group will hold open rehearsal dates on Sept. 9, Sept. 16, and Sept. 23 at the Wellesley Free Library from 7:30 p.m. through 9:30 p.m. Normal practice times are usually Monday nights at the library from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. from September through May.

This year, the chorus is expected to perform works by Monteverdi, Mozart, and more. The fall concert is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 24 at 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills, and will feature works by Italian composer Claudio Monteverdi, including the popular "Ave Maria."

Vocalists at the high school age and up are welcome to join, as are singers of all voice ranges, although the group notes they are in special need of tenors and basses.

The choral society was founded in 1947 as the Wellesley Community Chorus after several Wellesley vocal groups joined forces for a holiday festival. The group changed its name in 1966.

For more information on the organization or open rehearsals, visit the choral society's website, or email president Linda Derezinski at lindaderezinski@yahoo.com.
