Our Artistic Director, Alexander Cann would like you to prepare a song of your choice in a classical or folk style and would be grateful if you could bring 2 copies of the music. He will provide piano accompaniment if desired. He may also ask you to do a small amount of sight reading to assess your range and assess determine your ideal placement. Sight reading is not an essential skill.Auditions will be held at Melrose United Church (www.melroseunited.ca), which is also where we hold practices and all of our concerts in the coming season.
