Auditions: women's jazz vocal group: SF
The High Seas
(Jazz Vocal Group)
The High Seas is an all woman vocal jazz octet sponsored by the St. Francis
Yacht Club in San Francisco. We're a tight-knit, fun-loving group which
performs challenging, original SSAA arrangements of standard and "not so standard"
jazz and pop tunes. We perform both a cappella and accompanied (piano or trio),
at numerous Bay Area and St. Francis Yacht Club events. We rehearse Monday
evenings, 6:30-8PM, at the Yacht Club.
Positions currently available are soprano 1, soprano 2, alto 1 and alto 2.
Candidates should have a love of vocal jazz, sight reading ability, excellent
pitch, good showmanship and the ability to sing without vibrato. Candidates
must be able to commit to weekly Monday night rehearsals as well as performances
and occasional extra rehearsals. We're looking for a good blend with the
group, vocal and otherwise.
Auditions will be held on February 21 and March 21, 6:30-8 p.m. at the St.
Francis Yacht Club. In addition to singing two numbers with the group,
auditioners are asked to prepare a solo (jazz or show tune) of their choice. Music and
tapes for the group numbers will be provided beforehand.
If your audition is successful, and after a six month to one year trial
period, members may join the St. Francis Yacht Club as an Associate Member.
Associate Members enjoy the same privileges as regular Yacht Club members, but pay
less in dues.
