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 and Concerts
The Jameson Singers performs several concerts of choral-orchestral and smaller works each season. 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. The Winter Holiday Concerts will be on December 7 and 13, 2019, and the spring concerts will be on May 2 and 8, 2020.
