Camerata Choir of Grace Cathedral Auditions for 2011
Camerata Choir of Grace Cathedral, a mixed chamber choir of about 18 musicians will be holding auditions. Our schedule has us sing about 4 services a month at either the Sunday Choral Evensong or the Sunday Morning Choral Eucharist in one of the most magnificent, majestic and beautiful places of worship in the nation.
Camerata has steadily become an outstanding musical ensemble since its inception in the fall of 2005. Our weekly rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 PM 9:00 PM. Camerata sings a diverse repertoire of Medieval Chant, Renaissance and Baroque motets, Anglican Anthems and newly composed sacred works. Interested singers must have choral experience, read music, and commit to regular rehearsals. This is an excellent opportunity to offer one's musical gifts in a vitally important ministry to the community. Cathedral membership is not required.
Auditions are held by appointment. You will be requested to sing a prepared piece of any style that shows your vocal ability and musicality (a hymn or classical selection), and also do some vocalizing and sight-reading. The audition lasts approximately 15 minutes. An accompanist will be provided. There are openings for all voices.
