Cantilena Auditions for the 2018-2019 Season
Mon, August 27, 2018 - Mon, September 3, 2018
Cantilena ~ a women’s chorale, seeks new members in all treble voice parts (SSAA) to join us for the 2018-2019 season. Choral experience and the ability to read music are preferred. If you love making great music with great people, we encourage you to audition!
Auditions take place in the Sanctuary of First Parish Unitarian Universalist, Arlington Center, Arlington, MA. All auditions are by appointment only and consist of two meetings.
The first meeting is an appointment with the Music Director, takes approximately 15 minutes and includes vocalization, pitch-matching, and sight-reading exercises. Singers are also asked to prepare a song of their choice to demonstrate vocal quality, technique and musicality which will be sung without piano accompaniment. The song can be a simple hymn or folk song; it need not be a formal aria or art song. If you are interested in singing with Cantilena this semester, please fill out our audition request form before September 3, 2018 (Labor Day.)
The second meeting will give singers a better sense of a Cantilena rehearsal. Singers who successfully complete the 15 minute audition will be invited to sing with the full ensemble in the first rehearsal of the semester. Formal invitations for membership will be extended based on blend and balance at this rehearsal.
To schedule an audition with our music director, Jennifer Kane, please visit the Audition Information page on our website and fill out the audition request form. Singers may e-mail Jennifer directly using this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
