SWINGLE SINGERS: AUDITION NOTICE
International a cappella group the swingle singers are looking for the perfect versatile female Alto and Soprano!
The ideal candidates will be comfortable in classical, jazz and pop styles, with the ability to take any vibrato off the voice and sing softly throughout the vocal range:
Alto (low E top G)
High soprano (low G to super E)
In both cases notes outside this range would be useful.
The positions will also include a certain amount of vocal improvisation, and someone who is comfortable improvising would be preferable but not essential. Good reading skills would also be an asset.
This is a full-time professional position. Each singer is unique and indispensable, and the group does not use deputies. The entire repertoire is performed from memory and with microphones. We are looking for singers with solid tuning and rhythm and the ability to perform to an exceptionally high standard both as part of an ensemble and as a soloist.
Alto - September 08
Soprano - January 09
First round of both sets of auditions will be held during the week beginning 5th May. Applications should include CV, photo and demo tracks if available and should be made by email to md@... by 21st April 2008.
The swingle singers perform in some of the world's greatest concert halls, as well as jazz clubs, festivals and arenas. The group's tours in 2008 include the USA, Russia, Korea and extensive touring across Europe. Don't miss this rare opportunity to be part of a world-renowned ensemble!
