The Chorus of Westerly, which is planning a full return to music later this summer, is now actively searching for new adult singers and child and teen singers for its 63rd concert season.
Adults or parents of children interested in singing in any program with the Chorus of Westerly should immediately email Music Director Andrew Howell (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up an audition appointment to join the symphonic program, or call 401.596.8663 or email Genviéve Spitale (email@example.com) to sign up for the Foundations Program.
Programs and Audition Information
For prospective new adult singers for the Chorus' symphonic program auditions will consist of singing a prepared musical selection and a variety of vocal and aural exercises. Specific details will be offered to potential singers when they book an audition appointment. For adults to be accepted into the symphonic program (which rehearses on Tuesday evenings), basic musicianship, singing experience, vocal quality, and a commitment to the full Chorus concert season is expected.
The Chorus of Westerly also offers a non-auditioned Foundations Chorus program for adult singers (which rehearses on Monday evenings) who have less musical experience or cannot commit to the concert season.
CHILDREN & TEENS
For prospective new child and teen singers, experience in music and singing is not a requirement to join the Chorus of Westerly's symphonic program. The relaxed and informal audition will serve as a tool for Mr. Howell to assess the child's current musical ability, and voice and then place them in the appropriate choir level within the symphonic program.
Subject to Covid conditions continuing to be favorable and regulations allowing regular rehearsals and a concert season to take place, singers admitted to the symphonic program will be eligible to perform in the Chorus of Westerly's 63rd Concert Season. Performances include this year's Summer Pops in September, Christmas Pops in December, Brahms Requiem and other works in April 2022, a Choral Festival next spring, and Summer Pops '22 next June.
