Job Submission Requirements:
Singers audition individually with the Artistic Director, Arian Khaefi. You should prepare a song or aria that effectively demonstrates your vocal and musical ability—a folk song, hymn, patriotic song or aria are all fine. Singers will also be asked to sing vocal exercises as demonstrated, to further assess voice category and color, and will sight-read a relatively simple melody and rhythm to demonstrate musicianship skills. Prior instrumental and/or vocal solo or ensemble experience is strongly recommended. Your audition will last approximately ten minutes.
