      Auditioning Now

      for

      Just Voices



      The newly formed professional a cappella vocal ensemble , Just Voices, of
      SingersMarin, is holding auditions for a few new voices to add to its
      numbers, (currently just 8 members - wanted, up to 16). If you are a
      trained singer, with a background in the Midwestern choral tradition, (just
      "kind-of" kidding), this ensemble is for you. The repertoire is eclectic,
      from early medieval/renaissance to 21st century compositions, including
      traditional folk songs and spiritual arrangements, as well as popular
      standards and today's contemporary a cappella sound. As the professional
      ensemble within the nonprofit SingersMarin, a performing arts organization
      of choruses for youth and adults, Just Voices is setting the standard of
      excellence for the art of choral singing. The goal is to be one of the
      finest vocal ensembles in the Bay Area.

      .. Extensive choral and a cappella singing experience

      .. Advanced sight-reading skills

      .. Excellent musicianship and intonation

      .. Colorful, soloistic voices (specifically a resonant low bass, and
      rich low alto)

      .. Someone with vocal percussion background

      .. Ability to blend (control vibrato)

      .. Language experience (Latin, German, French, Spanish)

      .. Interest in a broad range of music (from classical to jazz)

      .. Passionate and fun-loving singers

      .. Commitment



      What the audition will include:

      .. Assessment of vocal instrument and aural skills

      .. Tonal and atonal sight-reading

      .. Perform two songs of your choice - contrasting style (classical and
      popular/jazz)

      .. Perform prepared selection (sent to you via email)



      Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings, from 7:30 - 9:30 in Mill Valley

      A calendar of additional commitments are established at the beginning of
      each season.
