Audition notice

Over the coming month or two, I am sure the audition notices will fly thick and fast. Here's the first one!

Schola Nocturna, a small vocal ensemble of mixed voices based in Newton, MA, is looking for all voices for next year. Singers must be strong sight-readers, and have some prior experience in a choral setting. Singers will learn to read original chant notation and become conversant with performance practice. In addition, four-part literature will be sung.

Schola Nocturna sings ancient Latin chant and polyphony for a monthly non-denominational compline service on the first Sunday of each month at 8:30 PM with a warm up from 6:30
PM. Rehearsals are the previous two Saturdays from 10 AM to 12PM. Auditions are by appointment only; contact information for setting up an audition is here. Please prepare one short a cappella piece. You will be asked to try a few aural and rhythmic tests as
well as a bit of sight reading. More information about Schola Nocturna and Night Prayer can be found here. Schola Nocturna is directed by Amelia LeClair.
