Golosa Russian Choir Auditions
- Dear Friends of Golosa, the University of Chicago Russian Choir,
Right now is your one big annual chance to be a part of the action. Come
try for an opportunity to sing this uniquely beautiful music in the
company of some of the most talented and dedicated singers anywhere. It is
once again time for our yearly auditions!
Auditions will be held this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday Oct 2-3,
and the following weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct 9-10. All auditions
will take place in Hyde Park between around noon and 4:00. A typical
audition lasts about 20 minutes.
We are currently auditioning for all voice parts, although this year we
are especially seeking sopranos. No knowledge of Russian is necessary to
sing in the group, although any knowledge you do have will certainly be a
benefit to you. You do not have to be a student to sing in the group nor
do you have to be of a certain age. All you need is a good ear, a strong
voice, and a desire to awaken the sleeping Cossack within you.
Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 in Hyde Park, with
occasional extra rehearsals before a performance. All folk music is
sung from memory.
If you are interested in auditioning, please respond to this email. If you
are unavailable on the dates mentioned, please let me know when you
are available, and we will gladly work out a different time for you.
If you are unfamiliar with what we do and would like to hear a sample of
our singing, please visit our website at: www.golosa.org and click on
I hope to hear from many of you!
Noel Taylor, director
