Audition for THE RED STATES - New York City!

Postby jimbobwaay » Fri May 18, 2012 8:46 pm

The Red States are holding their next round of auditions!

The first round of auditions is as follows: please send us your current a cappella/music résumé. It doesn't have to be an actual formal document--just the info in the body of an email is fine. Please be sure to include:

• Your first and last name (obviously)
• Your voice part(s)
• Any previous (post-collegiate/collegiate/high school) a cappella group(s)
• Any vocal percussion experience (what songs?)
• Any arranging experience (what songs?)
• Any leadership experience in past groups
• Your sight-reading ability
• Any solos you've had in the past
• Anything else you'd like us to know about your music background
• Any non-singing skills/experience you have that could be an asset to the group
• What do you do for a living?
• Besides singing, what do you do for fun?
• We rehearse on Tuesdays from 8-10 in Times Square - will that be a problem for you?

In addition to this information, please send us a video of you singing a solo. This can be a video of a past performance or just you singing into a webcam at home--it doesn't matter, we just want to hear your solo voice at its best. (A link to YouTube, Vimeo, etc. is perfect.) If you're a vocal percussionist, please feel free to send along a video of that, too. And finally, if you’re an arranger, please send along a PDF or two of what you consider your best work (excerpts are fine).

Currently, we are looking in particular for a great treble voice to join our Soprano and/or Alto sections, but are accepting submissions from all voice parts.

Email, with "AUDITIONS" in the subject line, with your information and video(s) by Friday, May 25th. While we would love to meet all of you, simply due to our busy schedule and limited rehearsal time, we won't be able to hear everyone in person. We'll let you know if we'd like you to come to a rehearsal and sing for us for Round 2. Please don't let this dissuade you from sending us a video! We want to see what you can do, so give it your all! You will receive a response either way if you have reached the second round by Tuesday, June 5th. Any more questions - please don't hesitate to email!
