Halifax Camerata Singers – Looking for Great Singers!

Halifax Camerata Singers is currently holding auditions for all voice parts for the 2017-18 season (31st season) for singers who have a solid vocal technique, good sight-reading skills and above average musical ability. Previous choral experience is a must. If you would like to be part of this dynamic choral ensemble please contact General Manager Peggy Walt at peggy@culturalaffairs.ca for more information.

The choir is under the direction of founding Artistic Director Jeff Joudrey, and forms the core of the Symphony Nova Scotia Chorus, who will be performing Handel’s Messiah in December, and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in the spring with SNS.  Halifax Camerata Singers will also reprise their show commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion (December 3), present two remembrance-themed concerts in November with guests, Nova Voce, and present a concert with guest mezzo-soprano, Christianne Rushton, in March and June.

Wanted: Choir to Perform @ the Bluenose Marathon

 

 

 

 

 

Every year CBC Nova Scotia is one of the sponsors of the Blue Nose Marathon. One of the things that we do is arrange to have some music on the route, as the runners are starting out. The participants tell us it means a lot and is inspiring to have a group singing to send them on their way. We look for a high energy ensemble. The choir would be needed for just a couple of hours at the most. It’s just a 5 k run/walk so it would be to cheer participants on as they head out and as they return. The choir will be mentioned on our Social Media platforms. They will also be part of our weekend wrap-up video. If they wish to have a sign stating who they are, they are welcome to do so. We can provide t-shirts unless they prefer to wear their own uniform/outfits. This is a voluntary performance although we can offer an honorarium of $250.

WHEN
The event is Saturday, May 20. The run begins at 2pm so the meeting time would be 1.30 pm to be in place.

WHERE
The location is the corner of South Park and Bell Road (near the Garrison Grounds, across from the old CBC Building)

We would like to have a choir lined up as soon as possible. For more information or to sign up contact:
