5280 A Cappella, an 8-year-old mixed Colorado septet with VP, seeks a talented Baritone to fill out our sound. Our repertoire includes: aka-classics and American standards, contemporary rock, folk, country, gospel, pop, jazz and world music. Age range of us all is 25-55. We perform about once per month and are currently recording demos and are planning on another CD recording this year.
In this group you will be asked to:
-read music (sight-reading not required)
-hold down your own part, in tune, sometimes in tight harmonies
-IF possible, cover some Bass lines from E to shining E's. (if not, don't let that deter you!)
-solo well on leads that appeal to you
-blend with straight-tone when singing a background line
-use mic techniques to adjust your sound
-have an equivalent of at least a Shure 58, cord and straight up and down stand to be used at weekly rehearsals.
-take direction with little drama
-attend weekly evening rehearsals mostly on Tuesday evenings from 6-9 in North Denver area
This is a great group and we are very dedicated to singing well. We have a lot of fun and really enjoy singing together.
