Oriana Consort Auditions
Sat, March 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Saturday, repeating until Sun, April 8, 2018
The Oriana Consort seeks experienced tenors & basses to join its SATB singers for performances of Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir on May 4, 6, & 12. Sunday evening rehearsals in Cambridge. Program also includes other once-neglected-but-rediscovered music by Ludwig Senfl, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, & Amy Beach. Oriana is an accomplished chorale with an eclectic repertory, enthusiastic audiences, & a warm & attractive sound. Audio clips at www.orianaconsort.org; click LISTEN. We seek good-to-excellent readers with clear, center-of-the-pitch voices that work well with the group. Soloists always drawn from the membership. To schedule a half-hour audition in Cambridge, please email Walter Chapin at firstname.lastname@example.org, summarizing your choral & solo experience. You’ll join a quartet of Oriana members to read excerpts from our repertory & sing a brief but difficult choral part that you’ll prepare in advance. Bring a solo of your choice.
