Auditions for 2015-2016 Concert Season
Thank you for your interest in The Singers!
The first step in the audition process is the collection of choral/vocal resumes which need approval before auditions are scheduled. Resumes can be sent as a Word document, PDF, or in the body of an e-mail. All choral and vocal experiences should be listed with the names of the conductors and/or Artistic Directors. Resume review will begin on April 1, 2015.
Please send vocal resumes directly to email@example.com.
Singers may then be invited to a fifteen-minute initial audition which will include one prepared art song (any language), sight-reading (tonal and atonal), a prepared musical excerpt, and general vocalizations. Singers are asked to use The Singers’ staff accompanist for $15. Candidates will then be selected for the secondary group callback audition.
The Singers is a fully-professional choir. Rehearsals are on Monday nights from 7-10 PM, with occasional Thursday rehearsals, also 7-10 PM. Members receive a stipend for each rehearsal, concert, and recording session. It is preferable that auditionees have professional or collegiate choral experience on their resume. Members are responsible for purchasing their performance attire (women’s dress is approx. $70).
