Paid tenor position at St. Ann Chapel in Palo Alto
- St. Ann Chapel in Palo Alto is seeking a tenor to join a professional
soli quartet which provides service music for Sunday masses and other
services throughout the year. Rehearsals are held immediately before
and after Sunday services, with occasional weeknight rehearals as
needed for special events.
The members of this quartet act as resident artists and have the
freedom to plan their own music, within liturgical bounds. Control
over music selection combined with excellent accompaniment make this
position a good opportunity for growth as a soloist.
Prospective singers should have good sightreading skills, have solo
potential, be able to produce a relatively straight tone, and be able
to blend with other voices. Experience with chant and early music is
highly desired, but a strong candidate in other areas can be
considered if able to quickly learn these singing styles. There will
be a probationary period for any selected candidate.
Auditions will consist of:
- a prepared piece (bring an extra copy for the accompanist)
- sightreading a motet with other quartet members
- chanting service music
Interested singers should contact Helen Holder to schedule an
audition at hholder0@... or 408-480-9730.
