2014-2015 Auditions Announced!

VOX 3 Collective in Chicago is pleased to announce 2014-2015 company auditions for singers and pianists.  The company is semi-professional level, offering members the chance to learn and perform interesting repertoire, build exposure, and engage with supportive colleagues.  There are occasional opportunities for small honorariums.  All applicants will be considered.  Preference will be given to lower voices.  Limited audition slots will be granted to sopranos offering unique vocal or musicological capabilities.

Auditions will be held by appointment only in the Fine Arts Building (410 S. Michigan Avenue).  Auditions will be scheduled on two days this year:

  Tuesday, May 6 from 6:30-9:30pm
•  Sunday, May 11 from 1:00pm-3:30pm

Please prepare to offer a total of four vocal works based on the following criteria:
1.) One art song from standard 19th/early 20th century French or German repertoire
2.) One art song from a contrasting language and period 
(be creative!)
3.) One other solo vocal work 
(arias and cantata excerpts are acceptable)
4.) One musical theatre or pop selection

For more information on the group and its activities, please visit www.vox3.org.  The 2014-2015 season will again feature a number of themed art song recitals, choral concerts, opera lecture-recitals, and cabarets.  We are interested in working with musicians who demonstrate both excellence in performance and curiosity about the vast vocal repertoire. An ideal member of VOX 3 will have a musical axe to grind, a unique body of work he/she feels called to champion, and a zest for fashioning fresh programs that combine repertoire from diverse languages and time periods.

Please send your headshot and resume to Artistic Director Brian von Rueden at bvonrueden@vox3.org. All applicants should also complete the online audition form, which can be submitted here.  We will respond with a specific audition time and further details.

We look forward to seeing you at auditions.
