Auditions for Spring Concert
Mon, January 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Monday, repeating until Mon, January 22, 2018
Cantilena ~ an SSAA chorus in Arlington Ma ~ holds open auditions the first three Mondays in September and January. For the 2018 spring semester, the group seeks additional alto voices. We look for voices which blend with our ensemble and also encourage members try out for the solo passages within our classical contemporary repertoire.
If you are interested in auditioning, we ask that you come to one of the open rehearsals, sing with us, and then stay after the abbreviated rehearsal for a brief audition with our music director, Jennifer Kane, and a small audition committee. Open rehearsals end early to allow for auditions. There is no need to reserve a spot, and no preparation is required. The audition consists of vocal exercises and tone matching, followed by having you sing a familiar tune of our choosing. Our singers all have prior choral experience and either some sight-reading ability or a very good ear.
Cantilena rehearses each Monday evening from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in Arlington Center at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church, 630 Mass Ave. Cantilena’s spring 2018 semester begins on January 15th, and ends with a concert on Sunday May 6th. The fall season runs from the first Monday after Labor Day to the early December concert date. Rehearsals are held on all Monday holidays, including Columbus Day and MLK Day.
Next Audition Dates (especially seeking alto voices):
