AUDITIONS

Music lovers and singers of all levels are welcome into the JACOMO Chorale. There is no formal audition to join the group. Instead, prospective singers will go through a process of voice placement. Prospective singers will be asked to perform the following tasks:

1. Sing  a tune which he or she feels comfortable, such as a church hymn, a folksong, a bel canto/operatic piece, a jazz standard, or even a popular song.

2. Sing “Happy Birthday” in three different key signatures.

3. Describing his or her level of comfort with written music.

Regardless of the skill level of the prospective singers, they will be invited to attend the first rehearsal in order to have an idea about the pace of practices and the level of expectation on the part of the conductor as well all the other members. Please call Nancy at (816) 560-9148 for additional information.
