Call for Singers - Taylor Festival Choir - Charleston, SC
Date: July 13, 2014
Location: Charleston, South Carolina, USA
Auditions for the Nationally recognized Taylor Festival Choir will be held:
Friday, August 8, 5-10pm at the College of Charleston
Saturday, August 9, 11am-7pm, at the College of Charleston.
Auditions may be completed in person, or via skype or facetime. Singers with conflicts that prohibit them from participating in the auditions may schedule a different time upon request.
We will choose a 20-28 voice roster for each concert over the season. We will be offering contracts, both via email and snail mail, in late August.
Only those that audition will be considered for concert rosters.
TFC Audition Process:
1. A complete song or aria. Anything will do. Accompanied or unaccompanied. Whatever you believe shows you in your best light. You may sing in person, or record something previously (those out of town may prefer this to singing via Skype). Live auditions will have an accompanist provided. NOTE: Those of you that have sung solo movements with the TFC or other professional ensembles within the last two years may count that as your aria/song…so long as it was recorded and either we have it or it can be made available.
2. You will be asked to vocalize.
3. You will be asked to sight-sing a short excerpt.
