Ro Sham Bo, winners of the 2013 Bay Area Harmony Sweepstakes, are looking for an ALTO!
This is a rare opening to join an expert A cappella group in the Bay Area. If you are looking for the ultimate opportunity to sing with a dedicated group in 2013, this is your chance! Ro Sham Bo, one of the Bay Area’s favorite a cappella groups for almost 20 years running, is seeking an alto.
The perfect fit will have:
1) experience singing in small ensembles (one voice to a part)
2) experience singing jazz (you understand the difference between a jazz phrase and a prepositional phrase).
3) A deep desire to sing with a group that has a passion for exceptional musicianship while still having fun.
4) Ability to gig approximately once a month, and to rehearse once a week (Tuesdays) in Oakland
We have: A dedicated group with exciting and challenging arrangements in jazz, funk, Latin, and pop.
We will be hosting an open 1st audition on Tuesday, August 20th. All interested candidates should email us at roshambosings@..., with a brief description of your background as it applies to the points listed above.
If we view you as a possible fit for the group, we will send you music files of three partial songs to learn for the group audition. During the group audition, we will review the music with all candidates together, and then sing with each candidate individually. Those with a strong performance on the audition tunes will be asked to come back again for a call-back audition.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
Ro Sham Bo
