The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota will hold auditions for its 2013-14 season from 5-9 p.m. Thursday, June 6, and from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Baxter.
The chorale’s artistic director, Sarah Aamot, is seeking singers of all voice parts and will be listening for the following musical skills during auditions: intonation, tone quality (choral sound vs. solo), ability to control vibrato and volume, vocal flexibility and expressiveness.
A prepared piece is not necessary.
Upon acceptance into the Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota, singers will be given season schedules, program information and membership guidelines. Each singer will also be required to sign a “Statement of Understanding” contract, pay a membership fee of $25 (per session) and pay for the cost of their own concert attire and transportation to rehearsals and concerts.
Rehearsals will be every Tuesday from 6:45-9:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 3 in the choir room of Brainerd High School. Winter concerts are scheduled Dec. 13 and 14 in Deerwood, Nisswa and Brainerd; spring concerts are set for April 24-26, 2014.
Singers from any community, large or small, are encouraged to audition. Currently there are 61 singers in The Legacy Chorale representing Aitkin, Baxter, Brainerd, Breezy Point, Crosby, Crosslake, Deerwood, East Gull Lake, Garrison, Hackensack, Ironton, Little Falls, Merrifield, Nisswa, Pequot Lakes and Pillager.
