Masterworks Chorale Auditions and Open Rehearsals, Fall 2019
Tue, September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tue, September 10, 2019
The 80-voice Masterworks Chorale, conducted by Kevin Leong, is holding auditions for all voice parts. The repertoire for the Chorale’s 80th Anniversary Season includes Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and Ernest Bloch’s Sacred Service.
Auditions for all voice parts are scheduled during two Open Rehearsals for prospective new members: Tuesdays, September 3 and 10, 7:30–10 pm, at Beth El Temple Center (2 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478; near Fresh Pond Circle, Cambridge). Sopranos and tenors are especially welcome.
Rehearsals held Tuesday evenings, 7:30–10:00 pm at Beth El Temple Center in Belmont. Plenty of free parking. Direct access via bus from Harvard Square. Concerts will be 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: (1) 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. (2) Sight reading, with consideration given to accuracy of notes, intervals, and rhythm.
