Seattle Jewish Chorale auditions
Sunday, August 26, 1–5 p.m.
The Seattle Jewish Chorale invites all voice parts to audition for its 2012–2013 season. Singers must have music-reading ability and be able to commit to weekly Wednesday night rehearsals in northeast Seattle, six to eight performances between September and June, and some travel outside the Seattle area. Sight-reading skills are preferred and familiarity with Jewish languages is a plus. Opportunities exist for solo and ensemble work.
