California Dreamin’ SOLO Auditions
– Our next Cool Choir song we will be beginning week of 23rd May 2016 (no rehearsal that evening in Hillhurst Sunnyside due to Victoria Day) is ‘California Dreamin’ by the Mamas and Papas which has been arranged for a soloist and choir. This means that a soloist will lead parts of the song from the front while the choir add beautiful harmonies and pick out specific lines from behind.
– There is no dedicated audition process for these opportunities for soloists within our usual choir songs.
– If you are interested in auditioning for California Dreamin’, please wait until I have introduced the song at the first choir rehearsal week of 23rd May before coming forward to let me know
– When the audio downloads are released, there will be a ‘solo’ download for this song so that all those interested in auditioning for the solo can access this and start listening to it to learn, practice and prepare
– Any week from and following the week of 30th May, please be prepared to stay for a few minutes at the end of your usual weekly rehearsal to audition (you will be very warmed up from two hours singing)
– From and following the week of 30th May I will also be asking any particularly confident people to openly come forward and stand at the front of the choir in rehearsals and sing the solo in front of the choir. This gives me an opportunity to hear how confident the choir are following you. It is vital the right person solos with the choir and leads them confidently through the song!
– I will select and notify my chosen soloist through email by Friday 17th June at the latest
– Any other questions about anything, let me know please!
