Soaring Sounds Vocal Ensemble Auditions
Date: June 22, 2014
Location: Tampa Bay Area, Florida, USA
Soaring Sounds is a semi-professional vocal group based in the Tampa Bay area. We are currently seeking talented, friendly people to become a part of our new and amazing ensemble. We produce 5 concerts per season, with 3 in the fall and 2 in the spring. Because we maintain a roster of over 20 singers, yet only use 14-18 on any one concert, auditions are accepted on an ongoing basis. Singers on the roster may pick the concerts in which they are interested in singing. This allows for flexibility on the part of each individual.
We have a two step audition process:
1. Submit the following materials via email:
~Audio/Video solo recordings of any style; one a cappella and one accompanied is preferred
~Current performance resume
2. Phone interview
Here is our 2014-15 Concert Season:
"Prayers and Petitions: Sacred & Secular Pleas for Peace" Aug. 29 & 30
Will feature music of Rachmaninoff, Runestad, Lauridsen, Paulus, and more.
