ATTN SINGERS: Los Angeles Chorus is looking for professional singers for its 9th Christmas Concert with Los Angeles Symphony @ Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts on 12/12/2021 (Paid Opportunity)

ABOUT LOS ANGELES SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA:

Since 2001, Maestro Hyun Sang Joo has been leading Los Angeles Symphony for more than two decades as the artistic director. Los Angeles Symphony has performed at iconic venues such as Walt Disney Concert Hall, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, Alex Theatre, etc.

ABOUT 2021 CHRISTMAS CONCERT AT CERRITOS CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS:

Los Angeles Symphony and Los Angeles Chorus will be presenting a holiday concert showcasing classic Opera arias, Korean art songs, Christmas music, and pieces by George Frideric Handel, John Rutter, Giacomo Puccini, and Pietro Mascagni on December 12, 2021 at Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Maestro Hyun Sang Joo will lead 50 musicians and a 50-member choir along with featured soloists.

LOS ANGELES CHORUS AUDITION PROCESS:

We are planning to hire 6-8 professional singers for each section (SATB) this time. It is going to be a temporary position this time, but there is a big potential that it will turn into a more regular position as we are considering adding more performances throughout the year.

Some of you may have already sung with Los Angeles Chorus in the past, and we would like to have you back. However, you still need to submit your audition materials by the deadline. It is actually a great opportunity to be heard by Maestro since he is going to participate in the selection process.

Using the link below, complete the audition form using Google Forms by October 18th (Mon), 2021. Towards the end of the form, you will be asked to provide two links of your solo performances and a PDF file of your professional resume. One of the two videos has to be an operatic aria, and the other one can be any genre of your choice. It is acceptable to submit two arias as long as they represent contrasting styles.

PERFORMERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES:

Covid Vaccine Requirement - For everyone’s safety, you are required to be fully vaccinated by the first rehearsal. You do not need to submit the proof of vaccination at this point, but you will be asked to “show” us the proof at the first rehearsal. Based on the assumption that all performers and staff members are fully vaccinated, we will be singing without masks. We will try to give you some space as much as possible; however, it is not realistic to practice 6-feet social distancing due to the size of the venues.

Attendance & Preparation:

-You have to attend ALL of the scheduled rehearsals. No exceptions allowed.

-You have to learn your music on your own. We will email you all the music at least one month prior to the first rehearsal. No memorization required.

-You have to provide your own concert attire (concert black) and a black three-ring binder. We will hand out the printed music at the first rehearsal.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the audition process, please contact the chorus manager: losangeleschorus2012@gmail.com
