Altos and Basses Needed – Holy Spirit Catholic Church
The choir is comprised of a team of dedicated volunteers and professionals; as such, the ability to work with and guide volunteer singers is crucial. Repertory eras range from medieval plainchant/Renaissance polyphony up to modern compositions written in a classical idiom.
Educational requirement: Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Music or Bachelor of Music (BM) in any discipline (vocal performance preferred). Undergraduate students currently completing a course of study in music are welcome to apply so long as they can guarantee routine availability for all choir calls, including Christmas and Holy Week/Easter.
Audition requirements: (1) Prepare Verse 1 of “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken” in Eb major; (2) a prepared solo selection; (3) sight reading of plainchant excerpt; (4) sight reading of a segment from a polyphonic work (singer’s own voice part).
