Auditions for the Jameson Singers’ 2019-2020 season will be held on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm at Payson Park Church, 365 Belmont St, Belmont, MA. If you would like to audition, please email auditions@jamesonsingers.org to sign up for a time slot.

ABOUT THE AUDITIONS

The Jameson Singers is open by audition to Boston area singers who have choral/vocal experience and quick musicianship. We focus on a choral sound that emphasizes pitch acuity, balance, ensemble rhythm, and the many expressive nuances that highlight the passing musical gestures.

We look for voices that are flexible: those that can blend well and modify vowels, and can sing easily with and without vibrato. Good intonation, a strong sense of rhythm, and good sight-reading skills are important.

The audition consists of scales, ear and pitch memory exercises, and sight-reading in order to evaluate voice, ear, and reading abilities. A prepared piece is not required, but prior musical experience is expected.

REHEARSALS

Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings from 7:15-9:45 p.m. at Payson Park Church, 365 Belmont St, Belmont, MA from September through April. Street parking is available, and the church is on the #73 bus line from Harvard Square. We usually perform concerts in December and in May.
