One event on Tue, March 10, 2020 at 7:30 pm
The 80-voice Masterworks Chorale, conducted by Kevin Leong, is holding auditions for all voice parts for its May concert, featuring Beethoven’s Missa solemnis.
Auditions for all voice parts are scheduled during two Open Rehearsals for prospective new members: Tuesdays, March 3 and 10, 7:30–10 pm, at Beth El Temple Center (2 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478; near Fresh Pond Circle, Cambridge). Basses 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. The concert will be performed in Sanders Theatre, Cambridge.
If you would like to audition, please send an email with your name, address, and phone number to email@example.com 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.
