Wanted: JAZZY SOPRANOS!
- The High Seas, an all woman vocal jazz octet, is looking for musical
needles in the haystack...sopranos who love to sing jazz!
We're a tight-knit, fun-loving group sponsored by the St. Francis
Yacht Club in San Francisco. We've been performing challenging,
original SSAA arrangements of standard and "not so standard" jazz
tunes for over ten years. We perform both a cappella and accompanied
(piano or trio), at numerous Bay Area and St. Francis Yacht Club events.
The positions available are soprano 1 (lead), soprano 2, and alto 1.
Candidates should have a love of vocal jazz, sight reading ability,
excellent pitch, good stage presence and the ability to sing without
vibrato. You must be able to attend weekly Monday night rehearsals,
7-9 PM at the St. Francis Yacht Club, 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 Monday, June 12, 2006 from 7-9 p.m. at the St.
Francis Yacht Club. In addition to singing two numbers with the
group, auditioners are asked to prepare a solo. Music and tapes for
the group numbers will be provided beforehand.
