  • Can commit to attending at least 75% of rehearsals
  • Already have experience of performing in concerts, events.
  • Are keen to develop their jazz singing technique to a new level.

Informal Auditions  
Because the Jazz Ensemble is a smaller group, we audition singers to ensure we maintain the right balance of voices within the group. We also want to check that singers have the musicianship and sight-reading skills to be able to learn the jazz arrangements we are going to be rehearsing and performing.
Format of audition: Your informal audition will be with the group’s Musical Director, Jim Clelland and should take no more than about 10 minutes and will include: – a few vocal exercises – some sight reading – performance of a jazz standard you have prepared in advance. Please bring a copy of your chosen song chart for the accompanist.
