APPLICATIONS TO AUDITION
You may submit your materials at ANY TIME. Also, we invite you to check out our auditions for Chorosynthesis Seattle.
We no longer require audio/video links, although if you have them, we HIGHLY recommend them.
If you don't have a Professional Resume/CV, please fill out this form IN DETAIL.
Please note that we will be holding auditions by appointment via Skype--or in rare cases, on site in Seattle.
After we receive your materials, if you are selected for an audition, you will be contacted directly.
Singers interested in joining the roster of and performing with Chorosynthesis Singers should possess extensive solo and ensemble experience, excellent musicianship skills, familiarity with early and contemporary vocal styles, and a desire to sing at the highest level of vocal ensemble performance.
Chorosynthesis contracts singers from its roster on a per-project basis. Programs vary vastly from project to project. Chorosynthesis not only pays it singers, but also provides a new model for performing with a professional ensemble with two co-artistic directors and the unique application of its four pillar values: innovation, sustainability, collaboration, and excellence.
Our most recent project for Chorosynthesis Singers included a performance of a program of high-quality modern music at Seattle's Good Shepherd Chapel as part of the Wayward Music Series on March 19, 2016. This concert focused on 10 premieres whose themes are primarily oriented toward social justice and which demonstrate Chorosynthesis' vision, mission, and values. Many of these works came from our recent call for scores. We will announce our 2016-2017 soon, which will include a recording project with a major record label.
Interested singers should be prepared to submit the following when filling out the Audition Form (see below):
- A current professional resume or curriculum vitae. Alternatively, you may fill out the Auditonee Information Form in Word, save it as a PDF, and attach it below.
- One photo or headshot (optional initially)
- Two references including phone numbers and email addresses
- (optional, though strongly recommended) Web links to unedited audio-visual and/or audio performance recordings of 2-3 solo vocal works (chamber or choral works in which you perform as a soloist or one on a part is acceptable) in contrasting styles and languages, one of which should be early music and another of which should be contemporary. Note: Videos or sound files to which the web links point should be labeled (in the title or notes section of the online video or sound file) with the musician’s full name and voice part.
