VT Jazz a cappella group seeks Soprano and Tenor

Postby Vikkivt » Mon Jul 17, 2017 12:20 pm

Do you have a passion for singing great harmony? If so, please read on!

Maple Jam, a local jazz a cappella octet, has openings for a SOPRANO and a TENOR. Our ideal candidates will have a flexible range from low to high within their voice part and should be able to blend their voice successfully with the rest of the group and sometimes be a featured soloist. Our 5 to 8-part jazz a cappella repertoire ranges from classic big band tunes, jazz standards from the American Songbook, and other fun music of the 1940s through the 1970s. Some ability to read music is a must. Good sight-reading skills are desirable, but not a deal-breaker. Since we are not accompanied by instruments, a good sense of pitch is essential. Comfort singing with a microphone in hand (and moving!) in front of audiences is also a big part of what being a member of this band is all about!

We are a semi-professional band: meaning that the group might get paid something to perform but it is not a viable career by any means. In other words - you keep your day job! However, we are serious about performing high-level concerts 8-12 times a year throughout the state of Vermont and just beyond its borders. All this requires a significant dedication of time and effort from each member. Our ongoing rehearsal schedule is one night a week for 3 hours (6-9pm). Each band member is expected to attend rehearsals regularly and is responsible for learning and memorizing their part between rehearsals.

If all this sounds like it’s right up your alley and you’d like to give it a try, please contact Vikki Day to set up an audition. info@maplejam.com, 802-999-8881. http://www.maplejam.com. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have and fill you in on the audition process at that time.
