Zephyr Vocal Ensemble announces new singer auditions!
- Auditions for Zephyr Vocal Ensemble Scheduled
Auditions are being announced for the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 22nd for Zephyr Vocal Ensemble in Vernon, NJ for its current openings of Soprano 1, Tenors 1 and 2, Baritone and Bass.
A 16-voice, professional-level vocal group, Zephyr Vocal Ensemble performs in concert without a conductor to foster intimacy between the artists and audience. The group's varied and eclectic repertoire spans from early chant and classical music including Dufay, Palestrina, Mozart, Mahler, Pärt, Whitacre, and Lauridsen, all the way up to jazz, rock, pop, doo-wop, world music, and show tunes. Most music is sung a cappella and concerts are profound and evocative, entertaining and fun, delivering a superb level of artistry. All music is memorized with some light dance/gesturing, when suitable to the music.
Zephyr is excited to bring music to the people, with its ability to perform at community festivals and events enabling a broad spectrum of people to enjoy its music, unhampered by piano, orchestra or sheet music. The group performs throughout the Tri-State area and has performed as a featured guest ensemble in the concerts of other organizations such as Ridge Light Opera and the Orpheus Club Men's Chorus. Weekly rehearsals are Thursday evenings in Vernon, NJ. Members take responsibility to learn and memorize their parts at home in order to use the group rehearsals to focus on the sound, blend and artistry of the group. The next concert will be December 8, 2012 at First United Methodist Church of Newton, with a fundraiser Dessert Cabaret to be held at the same location at the end of September.
Zephyr's board of directors is pursuing the capability of paying its singers. If you are a natural performer who is comfortable with an audience and are interested in singing in a group with a wonderful collaborative atmosphere, please e-mail Artistic Director, Cherwyn Ambuter, at zephyrve@... or call her at 973.764.0828.
