Announcements

Open Auditions for
October Chamber Chorus Concert

Music on the Hill seeks professional or semi-professional singers to form a 16-voice Chamber Chorus. This ensemble performs works from all time periods, and combines a fresh artistic approach with an efficient but relaxed rehearsal process. The Chorus has two rehearsal-performance cycles per year, and singers are paid a stipend for each cycle.

This fall's program is "Music in Nature." Rehearsals: Tuesdays September 9, 16, 23, 30; Dress rehearsal: Saturday October 4. Performance:  Sunday October 5 at 3:00pm in Westport, CT.

Auditions will consist of vocalization, sight-reading, and one prepared piece. Bring two copies of the sheet music; an accompanist will be provided.  Applicants should be skilled in pitch, rhythm, sight-reading, blending, tone quality and musicality. Each singer should bring independent vocal strength, yet be able to listen effectively and blend with their section and the chorus.

Auditions will be held on Wednesday, August 27, and Tuesday, September 2. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to schedule an audition.
