“Thank you for a very inspiring rehearsal. I like when I leave rehearsals with a feeling of having learned something new.” — Sara, soprano
Our philosophy is that quality musicians make for informed, enthusiastic collaborators. Knowledge of one’s instrument or voice, general music background, and an ability to communicate effectively about the music are critical to successful collaboration between singers and instrumentalists. To that end, all performing members are initially auditioned to join.
Calliope holds auditions on a quasi-rolling basis, with open positions auditioned for in the 4 weeks prior to and 2 weeks following the beginning of a new rehearsal cycle. Outside of that window, performers are welcome to audition for future concerts.
For our upcoming concert (Feb 8, 2020) the audition window is closed. Check back in late spring for auditions of our September 2020 concert.
Any interested performer should submit out the form below and our Music Director will be in touch to schedule an audition. If an audition falls during a rehearsal cycle, it will be scheduled before or after an evening’s rehearsal, and the auditionee is welcome to participate in that rehearsal. Rehearsals are Tuesdays 7-9:30pm at Emmanuel Church, 15 Newbury St Boston.
