AUDITIONS - Volunteers
What: Auditions for the Spring 2020 production
When: February 29, Saturday from 2 pm to 4:30
Where: Westminster Presbyterian Church, downtown San Jose
Rehearsal schedule: VOSV meets 2-3 times every month, usually 2 Saturday afternoons and 1 Monday night. We are looking for experienced and advanced singers who are interested in a wide range of repertoire and can learn music on their own, so our rehearsal schedule can be much lighter than other choral/vocal groups in the area.
Repertoire: This Spring Voices of Silicon Valley will present a staged production of great Luciano Berio Cries of London, Meredith Monk Earth Seen from Above (please see the link below) and madrigals by Gesualdo. This is a great opportunity for singers as this staged production will be presented in late May-early June in some of Bay area’s best concert venues.
Recent VOSV recording:
About Voices of Silicon Valley: founded 2014, VOSV is a vocal ensemble/chamber chorus that over the past 5 years has made a significant progress in expanding the range of possibilities for a choral/vocal performance, presenting interactive works for choir and audience/cell phones, rarely performed avent-garde masterpieces and traditional works combined with recent technology. In recent years, Voices have been named “one of the 8 music groups changing Bay Area” by KDFC and “an adventurous new ensemble” by Joshua Kosman (San Francisco Chronicle).
VOSV most recent Ghost Ship Memorial concert was featured on Bay Area evening news.
As Lent approaches, some powerful music is planned for Third Baptist Church in Grand Center, St. Louis. Singers interested in taking part in some or all of these presentations (repertoire available on church website) are invited to contact the Director of Music, Dr. Philip Barnes, at the church. Prior choral experience is expected, and some reading skills necessary; these help in keeping the weekly time commitment to a minimum. Contact pbarnes (at) third-baptist.org for more information.
No auditions necessary; all voice types welcome. Join the Schiller Institute NYC Choruses for a wonderful year of Beethoven and African-American Spirituals. We will be singing Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis at several 9-11 concerts, with concerts and musikabends between now and then.
Branch choruses meet weekly in Manhattan, Flushing, Brooklyn, and Northern NJ (Bogota). For a full rehearsal schedule, please visit our website sinycchorus.com
