SOPRANO wanted for a cappella jazz quintet . . .
- Were a three-month-old SATBB a cappella jazz quintet, located in the
San Francisco Bay Area, looking for a soprano who can add her own very
special sound to our quintet. So far, we have a repertoire of 6-8 songs
and have already performed three times. We specialize in preserving the
songs of such popular quartets as The Hi-Los and The Four Freshmen,
while at the same time embracing the styles of Manhattan Transfer,
Singers Unlimited and The Swingle Singers.
We love the songs from the Big Band Era of the 40s, including those
sung by The Pied Pipers, The Modernaires and The Andrews Sisters. Were
all consummate group singers, with many years of ensemble experience
and use entertainment value as a litmus test in selecting our music.
Because two of our members live four hours distance from each other, we
meet every Sunday in South San Francisco. Were each responsible for
learning our own parts on our own time so our rehearsals arent spent
teaching notes. We're definitely not all work and no play, though, and
have a lot of fun at our rehearsals, along with creating beautiful
music. Were all totally committed to our long-range goal of sharing our
music with as many audiences as our individual schedules will allow.
If this sounds like the type of group youd enjoy singing with . . . and
you have the talent and the willingness to work hard to achieve
something truly unique . . . hop on board! This vocal express is out of
the station and on its way. So many songs . . . so little time!
