Oriana Consort Auditions
Sat, August 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC-4
The Oriana Consort seeks experienced singers in all voice parts to join us for performances on November 30, December 2, and December 8 of an all-a-cappella program: Dominick Argento’s Seasons (2014); O magnum mysterium by Morten Lauridsen and Tomás Luis de Victoria; contemporary Nativity pieces by Bob Chilcott, Matthew Culloton, Eleanor Daley, and Steven Sametz; and brief period Nativity pieces by Walter, Bach, and three anonymous composers.
Sunday evening rehearsals at University Lutheran Church, Cambridge, begin September 9. Oriana is an accomplished chorale with an eclectic repertory, enthusiastic audiences, and a warm and attractive sound. Visit www.orianaconsort.org and click LISTEN to hear our audio clips. We seek good-to-excellent readers with clear, center-of-the-pitch voices that work well with the group. Soloists are 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 and solo experience. You’ll join a quartet of Oriana members to read excerpts from our repertory and sing a brief but difficult choral part that you’ll prepare two days in advance. Bring a solo of your choice.
Audition dates are not limited to the listings on this calendar; another date can be arranged if needed.
