Vocal Jazz Quintet forming on the Westside
- (This is an update to a message I recently posted.)
I'm an experienced amateur singer looking to put together a
performance-oriented vocal jazz quintet (but not limited to jazz -
anything we like that sounds good is fair game). We now have an SATB
quartet; we would like to add a mezzo. If you're interested, email me
with your range; the evenings you're available to rehearse(I'm
planning to rehearse once a week in Santa Monica, but if you want to
host rehearsals, I'll consider a different location); and a bit about
your musical background.
It isn't necessary that you sightread perfectly (I don't!), but I
expect you to be able to take sheet music home and learn it relatively
rapidly. I want to build up a repertoire and perform. It goes without
saying that you must be able to commit to regular, reliable
attendance, and that you must be able to hold your pitch accurately
against other singers. There will be an audition.
If you're interested, or would like more information, please email me.
