The Oriana Consort seeks one 2nd soprano and two 1st tenors to fill its 32-voice complement of 8s-8a-8t-8b. We are preparing for concerts on December 8, 13, and 15 featuring J.S. Bach's Magnificat BWV 243 (with period instrumental ensemble), and seasonal a cappella music of Guerrero, Obrecht, Betinis, Chilcott, Parchi, Jeffers, Gjeilo, and Whitacre.
The Oriana Consort is an accomplished semi-professional chorale with an eclectic repertory, enthusiastic audiences, and a warm, attractive sound. Listen online to clips from recent concerts. Soloists are always Consort members. We seek good-to-excellent readers with clear, well-produced, center-of-the-pitch, solo-quality voices.
To arrange a half-hour audition in Cambridge, please email Walter Chapin at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include a summary of your choral and solo singing experience. For your audition, you'll join a quartet of Oriana members to read excerpts from our recent tour repertory, and to sing a difficult but brief choral part that will be available for advance preparation. Please also bring a solo of your choice.
