Auditions for original, performing women's ensemble
- Seeking harmony goddess!
Four women seek 5th for original vocal ensemble MAKING WAVES
Do you love to sing, rehearse, and perform with other women? Can you blend
in intricate harmony, then jump into vocal percussion or an improvisational
lead? Does your voice express your heart, your passion, and your
convictions? Can you commit to a weekly rehearsal?
Since past auditionees have dropped out after hearing our performance
schedule, here it is up front: 1-2 concerts in Feb., 5-8 in March (we're
part of a compilation release), 2-3 in April, 5-8 during 1st 3 weeks of May
(release & pre-tour) followed by a 2-week west coast "Rose Street on the
Road: Creating Musical Community" tour (5/25-6/10) featuring Making Waves,
Pamela Means, and Irina Rivkin. There might be another 1-2 week tour this
summer, plus occasional short weekend tours. Most non-tour shows are
evenings and weekends (i.e. day jobs ok, especially those with some time off
in the summer).
If all this overwhelms you, it's not a good fit. If it excites you, then
Making Waves may be for you! We sing all-original songs -- both songwriters
and non-songwriters welcome. Reading music is not important, but a good ear
for creating and singing harmony is. Creating that sweet, soulful, and
rockin' blend of voices to express and inspire personal and social change!
Making Waves: Singing out truth in multiple-part harmony
This women's acapella group was organized by Rose Street House of Music
Producer Irina Rivkin to record an original song (Making Waves), which aired
on KPFA, in support of this community radio station's struggle. The group
continued, in several different incarnations, to inspire audiences at venues
such as Freight and Salvage, Luna Sea, Rose St. House of Music, Ashkenaz,
East Bay Pride, and La Pe�a. They have shared stages with Rebecca Riots,
Margie Adam, Gwen Avery, Alice Di Micele, Irene Farrera, & Julia Butterfly.
For info, please call Irina at (510) 524-3545 (before 11 p.m.)
