C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective is holding auditions for singers, singer/conductors, singer/conductors/composers or any combination thereof on , location TBA. The audition will consist of vocalizing for range and timbre, prepared pieces, which will be e-mailed ahead of time, rhythmic and melodic sight singing, and a mini-interview if time allows.
C4 is a semi-professional choir that is directed and operated collectively by its singing members, functioning not only as a presenting ensemble in its own right, but also as an ongoing workshop and recital chorus for the emerging composers and conductors who form the core of the group. It is the first organization of its kind and one of the few choral groups in the nation to focus exclusively on the music of our time, performing only music written in the last twenty-five years. The group’s repertoire is challenging and requires members to have excellent musicianship skills and sight reading ability. Singers should have singing experience and a strong interest in contemporary choral music.
The group performs three cycles per season, and a small honorarium is paid to C4 members for each cycle. Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from with few exceptions. In addition to the weekly rehearsals, the group will also rehearse two Saturdays per each cycle. If you are interested in setting up an audition please send an e-mail to email@example.com with a copy of your resume and a short statement describing why you are interested in performing in a contemporary choral collective.
