Vocal Ensemble and Training Ensemble auditions 2017-2018
Auditions for our two chamber choirs will take place after school on Tuesday 5th September after school.
Please sign up on the door outside of the Music Office. You need only put down your name. This will go up some time next week.
You will be asked to sing the soprano line (tune) of Ave Verum Corpus by Mozart (up to bar 18). The music can be found here, as well as in Ms Doan's red pigeon hole (outside the Music Office) from next week. If you are lower voice, please see Mr Guinane or Ms Doan for clarification.
We are looking for a clear tone, accuracy of pitch and rhythm, and musicality. Pronunciation of Latin is not the most important thing.
You will audition once, and should you be successful, we will place you in the appropriate ensemble.
Vocal Ensemble rehearsals take place after school on Wednesdays, and Training Ensemble rehearsals at lunchtime on Tuesdays. Should you be offered a place, you will be expected to attend all rehearsals, as well as continuing to be a member of the main choir.
We would encourage all students interested in singing to audition. Please do not be intimidated by the high standards of both ensembles, we are looking for singers with potential that we can develop.
Any quality questions, please ask, but maybe when we don't look frazzled.
Ms Doan and Mr Guinane
