“Giving voice to diverse cultural experiences”
ViVoce Women’s Chorus will be holding auditions on February 13, 2017 (or as arranged) at
St. Michael and All Angels (1704 NE 43rd Ave. Portland)
Vivoce consists of 16-24 singers and performs two concerts a year in January and June. Our concerts feature folk music from around the world, poetry and storytelling. We perform in vibrant costumes that reflect the variety of folk music we perform. At our January, 2017 concert we sang music from Indonesia and from the Jewish Diaspora; two spirituals and other American folk songs; two Georgian pieces; and a motet by Victoria.
We are looking for experienced singers who read music reasonably well, who are independent on a part, and who are adept at blending with other voices. If your voice fits our needs, we would invite you to join the group for a trial season. At the end of your trial season, you and we can evaluate if being in the group is working on both sides. If so, we would ask you to join the group, and hope that you could commit to singing with us for several seasons.
You will vocalize, so we can hear your voice and your range.
You will sight-read a simple piece of music.
And we’d like you to sing a song (a cappella folk song, art song or aria) of your choice that shows your voice in its best light.
We are a friendly, open group of women who enjoy each other, laugh together, and work hard to sing well. We rehearse with serious purpose, and in good humor.
For more information about the group, including rehearsal and concert schedule for Spring / Summer 2017, or to arrange a time to sing for us, please contact: email@example.com.
