“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 applications accepted at any time, and open positions auditioned for in the weeks surrounding the beginning of a new rehearsal cycle. Interested performers are always welcome to submit their information for consideration.
For our upcoming concert (Feb 8, 2020) the audition window is closed. Check back in late spring for auditions of our September 2020 concert.
NB. Due to the dynamic nature of Massachusett's reopening plan, specific dates/venues for our 2020-2021 season have yet to be announced, but we are still accepting applications from prospective performers.
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.*
*Rehearsal venue and time may change in the 2020-2021 season.
