Colorado Singer looking for group(s)
- This note came to my CASA-ambassador email. Anyone out there in Colorado CASA-land able to help Justin?1) A young (male or mixed) group focusing primarily on contemporary a cappella, and utilizing both vocal percussion and 6-10 part arrangements. I saw postings on CASA's website for groups of recently graduated working professionals who all sang contemporary a cappella in college and just wanted to keep it going. That's exactly what I'm looking for, but the problem is the groups were all in the San Francisco and New York areas. Is there anything like this in Denver?
2) A semi-professional group with a classical repertoire ranging from 14th C. Polyphony to Contemporary. This is more along the lines of the Glee Club I sang with in college, but I love this kind of choral singing as well. Mixed or Male would work here as well.
Basically, I would just love to start singing again. I am primarily a 2nd tenor, but I've also sung my share of 1st and have a strong falsetto that allows me to sing counter-tenor if called for. Everyone is telling me that I should start my own group if I can't find anything, but that's not as easy as it sounds. I can read music and am talented musically, but not talented enough to write/arrange music at the level of difficulty I'm used to performing it. We had a very talented arranger/director in college, and I've never even been able to arrange anything at all. I think my talents would be better utilized in a group that already has a musical director and a repertoire. This isn't exactly a role I can improvise if I tried to start my own group...
Anyway, if either of you could let me know about any openings or opportunities you know of in the Denver/Boulder area, I'd really appreciate it. Feel free to call me if you need any more information or clarification on my range/skills/experience/etc.
Thanks so much for all your help,
