Auditions: New York City Bar Chorus
Date: July 4, 2014
Location: New York, New York, USA
High sopranos, tenors, baritones and basses! Do you watch "The Voice," "Pitch Perfect" or "The Sing-Off" and wish you had another chance to sing in a group -- such as a flexible, diverse and friendly (non-dancing) chorus featured on NY1 News as New Yorker of the Week? Would you enjoy singing sophisticated arrangements of great, fun music, ranging from The Fab Four to Pharrell, Gershwin to gospel, and West Side Story to Pippin and Wicked? (To hear us in action, click here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=osxulPh_7H4.)
The 80+ voice New York City Bar Chorus ("CBC") is conducting its next auditions (brief, private and low-pressure) in Summer 2014 for our fall cycle. We rehearse two or three Tuesday evenings per month, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, in midtown Manhattan to produce what our audiences describe as a professional-quality sound. We perform frequently as a goodwill ambassador of the New York City Bar, serving our community by bringing music to people in group residences and medical facilities. We also sing for luminaries of the bench and bar and are making connections with other legal and law enforcement choruses around the world. This past season, we hosted both the Chicago Bar Association Chorus and the Vizcaya Bar Association Chorus (of Spain), and look forward to more exchanges in the near future.
We also provide a forum for legal professionals to meet and sing together in a warm, fun and supportive environment offering many social and business networking opportunities. Prior choral or a cappella experience is preferred but not mandatory. Music-reading or sight-reading ability is helpful but not required if you have a "good ear." You also don't have to be a salesperson -- unlike other choruses, we don't require members to sell tickets, and annual dues are modest. Come help us celebrate our 22nd year of spreading musical joy.
If you practice or study law, or otherwise work in a law firm, in-house corporate or government law department, court, law school, legal non-profit, or any other legal setting, whether as a lawyer or non-lawyer, and would like to join us, please e-mail us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
