VOICE Auditions next week! Sign up now!
MessageResponse from female vocalists has been great thus far, but we'd still like to hear from more interested menfolk. :-)And please note that VOICE is located in Philadelphia -- some of our responses have come from vocalists far outside of our regional area, but we really appreciate your enthusiasm. It's wonderful to know that a cappella music has such ardent supporters around the world.
Yours In Peace and Harmony,

THE VOICE A CAPPELLA ENSEMBLE
Background & Audition Info
The VOICE A Cappella Ensemble, a performance extension of the Soul Sanctuary arts education foundation (www.Soul-Sanctuary.net), is dedicated to celebrating and uplifting humanity by sharing our stories through song. Recognizing the human voice as the world’s first instrument, our mission is to explore the vast range of vocal sound through charted arrangements and improvisation. We strive to educate and enlighten our audiences by sharing music that explores the diversity and intricacies of the human experience.
Our group is in transition -- as we seek to step up the complexity of our repertoire and once again enjoy the vocal variety afforded by a co-ed singing group. That means we're looking for a few good men AND women!
Rather than approach the music from a large choral perspective, Soul Sanctuary is building a strong octet – 8 vocalists who can rise to the challenge of a cappella arrangements and make the music soar for our audiences!
Auditions will be held on Monday, March 22 from 7 to 9p at The Rotunda, 4012 Walnut Street - next to The Bridge movie theater. All vocalists are asked to prepare 2 short selections (verse and chorus) -- one ballad and one uptempo number of your choice. Contemporary hits, as well as showtunes, are welcome. The strongest candidates will be asked to remain after their preliminary audition to learn additional material for further consideration. Final notification will be made by telephone or e-mail before March 25.
