AUGUST 22-31, 2023, SEP 4-13 | Mix is hosting auditions for the 2023/2024 season of concerts, festivals, friendships, a cappella harmony singing, and the occasional wedding flash mob 😉

New singers to Mix will join our incredible group of inspiring humans with amazing voices – music lovers, music teachers, University music majors, directors, musical theatre actors, and singers from award-winning choruses and quartets. Singers in Mix travel to K-W rehearsals from Stratford, Paris, Hamilton, Guelph, and beyond.


Mixology sings a mix of music genres in a mix of arrangement styles. We welcome all humans, just as long as they love music and have some killer pipes. 

Some of our songs are four parts, others are 11+ parts… but ALL of them are fun, challenging and sound amazing when sung a cappella with people who love harmony as much as we do!

Our current repertoire (which is always changing) includes jazz, rock, and pop, with songs from Billy Joel, Bill Withers, David Bowie, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, Seal, and musicals such as RENT, Moulin Rouge, Greatest Showman, and You Will Be Found. Mix singers are invited to audition for solo and small ensemble opportunities as they arise.


Here’s how it works:

  • First audition is by Zoom, with the director, Chris Arnold. 
  • During this 15 minute session, you’ll sing a song of your choosing, one that best shows off your vocals and range.
  • Chris may take you through a basic range test to get a feel for where your voice is most comfortable.
  • You may be asked to do some basic rhythm exercises to see where your comfort zone is with simple to complex rhythm.
  • If you pass this audition, you’ll be given our audition song (Seasons of Love, incl. sheet music and learning tracks) to help you learn for your second & last audition once you’re ready in September. 
  • While you’re learning the song, you’ll be invited to come to Mix rehearsals to practice with other singers and get a feel for the group.



  • The cost to be a part of Mix for 2023/2024 Season (Sep-July + optional summer extension) is $480.
  • Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7-9:30pm at HyGate on Lexington.
  • The focus is on great music, fun rehearsals, real friendships, and collaborations that betters the group as a whole.
  • There are opportunities for solos within many songs.
  • Travel and other expenses are the responsibility of singers.
  • We are a performance and competition group, formed originally with the goal of scoring top mixed chorus in Canada and a spot in the Worlds in Germany – which we did! In fact, we were invited to compete in Germany twice, but both times it was canceled due to Covid.
