What really sets Carolina Voices apart from the other local choral groups is the extraordinary spirit of its volunteer singers who provide their talent, time and energy to share their passion for music with others.
Audition Requirements: Candidates are asked to provide their own sheet music and to sing a thoroughly-prepared musical piece of their choice which shows their vocal quality, range and artistic expression. Individuals auditioning for Festival Singers should prepare an additional song or aria in a language other than English. Singers should bring 2 copies of their sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. Singers may also sing a cappella. No taped accompaniments, please. Auditions may also include range check, sight reading and tonal memory exercises.
In addition, Carolina Voices requires the following commitments of its singers:
Musical Diligence – Members are encouraged to bring a cassette recorder to tape rehearsals for review between rehearsals. All music is memorized for performances. Sheet music is provided for all concerts but must be returned to the music library in good condition after each show.
Attendance – Members are expected to be present for all rehearsals, all choral weekend rehearsals, and performances. Any unavoidable absences should be reported as soon as possible, preferably before the rehearsal/event.
Financial Support – Membership dues are $65 for the fall season and $65 for the spring season. Singers may elect to establish a payment plan, if needed.
Ticket Sales – Carolina Voices’ singers are strongly encouraged to ask friends, family and colleagues to purchase tickets to performances. Singers have first chance at the best seats in the house. Incentives and friendly competitions among choir members are offered to push sales for each performance.
Rehearsal Schedule – All regular rehearsals are held at Shalom Hall or Berry Hall at Myers Park Baptist Church, 1900 Queens Road, Charlotte, NC 28207. For questions, contact the Carolina Voices office at 704.374.1564.
