Chorus auditions for Palm Beach Opera’s 2014 International Season will be held Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20. The 2014 season repertoire that includes chorus is Verdi’s Macbeth (January 24-26, 2014), Rossini’s The Barber of Seville (February 21-23, 2014), and Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann (March 21-23, 2014). All auditions are by appointment and applicants must complete the audition request form available at www.pbopera.org.
Auditions are available for men and women singers ages 18 and older. Professional singers with training and experience with operatic literature and performance are encouraged to apply.
All singers must prepare one Italian operatic aria or art song and one other classical piece of the performer’s choice. Singers may also be tested on their musicianship (sight reading and tonal memory, i.e. the ability to sing back a melody played on the piano). A pianist will be provided.
