I’m cutting and pasting from our Facebook page:
The Choral Society of Grace Church will hold auditions for our 2013-2014 season on two or three weeknights in early August (dates TBD). We are looking for experienced choral singers in all voice parts who will blend as well as lead, tune sensitively without sacrificing vocal color, sing easily with and without vibrato, and master their parts independently in advance of rehearsal. Good intonation, a strong sense of rhythm and solid sight singing skills are important. The Choral Society values its members’ time highly and strives to offer a manageable, well-structured commitment.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesday nights between Labor Day and Memorial Day at Grace Church, Broadway and 10th Street. Repertoire for 2013-2014 features a varied program of choral favorites, including works by Palestrina, Pinkham, Bach, Mendelssohn, Gjeilo and Parry, on December 6 and 7, 2013, and a performance of Mozart’s Requiem with works by Verdi, Ives and Thompson, on May 9 and 10, 2014. All concerts are with professional orchestra players and soloists.
To request an audition, please send an e-mail captioned “AUDITION” that includes your name, voice part and choral singing experience to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will be in touch promptly. For more information about the group and to hear sound clips of our work, please visit www.thechoralsociety.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
