Openings in all voice parts for the 2019-2020 Season
Auditions for all voice parts are scheduled during two Open Rehearsals for prospective new members: Tuesdays, November 12 and 19, 7:30–10 pm, at Beth El Temple Center (2 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478; near Fresh Pond Circle, Cambridge). Tenors and basses are especially welcome.
Regular rehearsals are held Tuesday evenings, 7:30–10:00 pm, at Beth El Temple Center in Belmont. Ample, free parking is available, and buses run directly from Harvard Square. Concerts are performed in Sanders Theatre, Cambridge, and Old South Church, Boston.
If you would like to audition, please send an email with your name, address, and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (617) 858-6785 and leave this information on our voice mail. We will supply additional audition and scheduling information at that time.
Our audition consists of the following components:
● Solo of your choosing to be sung with piano accompaniment. Choose something that you know well and which you feel shows your voice to its best advantage. The piece does not have to be memorized. Past choices for solos have included arias, art songs, or hymns (your voice part in a choral work is not acceptable as a solo). Songs may be sung in English. A piano accompanist will be provided for you, and you should bring a copy of your music for the accompanist.
● Sight reading, with consideration given to accuracy of notes, intervals, and rhythm.
