Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo: Call for Choristers!

The Adult Choir In The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo is looking for choir members in all sections.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be part of the excitement of The Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo? If you love to sing, and are in Grade 9 or older, this could be your opportunity to find out! For the first time in two years, there will be a live show in June/July 2022. Commitment has been received by European groups and planning is well under way for this year’s event.

The choir begins rehearsals in May on Sunday evenings. The most intense and frequent time commitment begins near the middle of June. Here’s a very early rough draft of the rehearsal schedule:

14 – 17 June – Evening rehearsals beginning at 19:00
18 – 19 June – Some day and some evening rehearsals (this is when the international acts arrive)
20 – 22 June – Evening rehearsals
23 June – Student Matinee (first dress rehearsal) – begins at 10:00
24 June – Second Dress Rehearsal (Time TBC)
25 June – Preview show at 19:00.
27 – 30 June – Evening performances at 19:00.
26 June, 1 and 2 July – Matinee shows at 14:00.

Some things to consider:

• sight reading skills are an asset.
• memorization of all music is required.
• we perform on a stage built over the arena floor.
• there will be no social distancing on the stage.
• while performing, we will not be wearing masks.
• we move quickly in the dark while loading and unloading the set.
• costume parts are provided, white shirt/blouses and long black skirts/pants are not.
• you will receive two complimentary tickets to the Preview show
• you will receive a cast T-Shirt
