VOICES 21C 2019-2020 Audition Form
DEADLINE: September 25, 2019.

This form will ask you to complete a vocalise, choral excerpt, a response to our mission, a reflection of your skills, and a response to your current availability for the rehearsal dates. All details for these are outlined below and in the form.


VOICES 21C has been invited to perform at ACDA in Rochester, New York. The conference is from March 4-7, 2020. VOICES is performing on both Thursday and Friday of the conference (3/5 and 3/6). Some community outreach work will take place on March 3 and 4 for those available.

This invitation is *ALL EXPENSES PAID!* V21C is being reimbursed for lodging and transportation to Rochester. (This does not include meals.)

STAGING/STRUCTURE
ACDA has asked us to perform a concert on the theme of Peace and Justice. We will be referencing past year's staging, transitions, and repertoire to create our program in 2020, and to showcase V21C in the most versatile and exciting way.

AVAILABILITY
Along with recording a vocalise, choral excerpt, and submitting a singer reflection, please respond to your current availability for the rehearsal dates included in the form. Each voice part will also schedule one sectional meeting sometime in October (scheduled on case by case).

March 4-7 - ACDA Rochester

Our rehearsals will take place in the Boston area. Saturday rehearsals run from 10:00 am to 5:30 pm, with a scheduled hour break for lunch. Sunday rehearsals run from 1:30 - 7:30 pm.

PREPARATION EXPECTATIONS
With a rehearsal schedule that is shortened from previous years, our expectations for preparation are vitally important to our success.
OCTOBER: Every singer who signs on for this project should feel comfortable enough with the music, that we can start staging our program immediately. This should mean close to memorized from the start.
NOVEMBER: All repertoire will be memorized by this date, and the program will be roughly staged.
JANUARY: The program will be run in sets with staging, making minor adjustments as needed.
FEBRUARY: the program will be run and finalized with a potential pre-ACDA performance on one of the already scheduled weekends.

We are looking for 100% rehearsal attendance, but will except up to one weekend of absences as necessary (or two separate days on different weekends).

POST-CONFERENCE
VOICES 21C has been invited once again to perform through ALEA III, and will be attempting several outreach performances in Boston, following our performance at ACDA. Committing to ACDA Rochester does NOT also mean commitment to these local outreach projects. Dates and times for these performances are TBD, and availability will be polled at a future time.
