*** Rehearsals: Thursdays *** Rehearsal neighborhood: Manhattan
C4: The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective is holding auditions for all voiceparts on Tuesday, Dec. 19 from 7-10PM, in Manhattan. The audition will consist of vocalizing for range and timbre, a prepared piece which will be e-mailed one week beforehand, rhythmic and melodic sight singing, and a blending exercise.
C4 is a semi-professional new music choir, directed and operated collectively by its singing members. It is both a presenting ensemble and a workshop chorus for the emerging composers and conductors at the core of the group. It is 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 25 years. The repertoire is challenging and requires members to have excellent musicianship skills and sight reading ability. Practice tracks are made available for both the audition and concert repertoire. Singers should have choral experience and a strong interest in contemporary music. C4 is looking for people of all ages, esp. college musicians and recent grads, and to further diversify the ensemble.
There will be 2 concerts, on Fri. Mar. 15 and Sat. Mar. 16. Rehearsals will be on Thursday evenings beginning Jan. 11, from 7-10 PM. A small honorarium is paid to members.
If you are interested in setting up an audition slot, please email before Dec. 9. Visit c4ensemble.org/ and youtube.com/c/C4Ensemble/featured for more information about the group and performance samples.
