Auditions

Interested in joining Elektra Women’s Choir? We are always looking for highly experienced and skilled, classically-based sopranos and altos. Please listen to our recordings if you are considering auditioning. If you feel you are a good fit with Elektra’s style of music, contact us and introduce yourself and your choral singing experience. All singers selected for an audition will be sent the choir’s schedule in advance, and are asked to consider how Elektra would fit into their life. Joining Elektra is a big (and rewarding) commitment and full participation – from singing to volunteering for various special projects and events  – is required of all singers. Elektra rehearses Mondays from 7 – 9:30pm from September to June on the west side of Vancouver.

Prospective singers will be auditioned by the Artistic Director. At the audition, you will be asked to do basic vocalization and range testing with piano accompaniment; present a song of your choice (accompanist provided, please bring an extra copy of the music); and sight-read a song of the Artistic Director’s choice. Singers should be comfortable identifying major and minor key signatures as they will be asked to do so before sight-reading the piece(s).  Note that Elektra is a classical choir, so your solo song must reflect classical vocal technique.

Audition dates are generally available in January, June, and August. For more information or to arrange an audition time, please contact Bernice Slemko at 604-739-1255 or manager@elektra.ca.

The next audition date is Wednesday, August 15 , 2018  at Pacific Spirit United Church (formerly called Dunbar Ryerson, in the sanctuary at 2205 West 45th Avenue, Vancouver).
