Auditions for Pro Coro Canada - April 26 to 29, 2012

One of Canada's foremost professional choirs, Pro Coro is holding auditions for 2012-2013.  The upcoming season will showcase the talent and unique skills of this virtuoso choir, featuring some of the greatest a cappella works from the 19th to 21st centuries. Pro Coro regularly performs at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton, and travels frequently throughout the region.

Pro Coro's new Artistic Director and Principal Conductor, Michael Zaugg, will be selecting individual singers for the choir's core ensemble. Outstanding artists will be offered opportunities for solo work in Pro Coro's six season subscription concerts as well as other performances.

Auditions for Pro Coro Canada will take place with Mr. Zaugg in Edmonton, Alberta from Thursday April 26 to Sunday April 29, 2012 at the Alberta College Conservatory of Music.  The audition will consist of two elements:

  • Individual - 15 minutes per singer, pianist provided
  • Ensemble - 90 minutes per group of 12, a cappella
Please contact the Pro Coro office to arrange for your individual audition, held either April 26 between 1:30pm and 10pm or April 27 from 10am to 9pm.  Ensemble auditions will take place on a call-back basis on April 28 or 29 between noon and 5:45 pm.

Once your individual audition is booked, you will be provided with detailed requirements and pdfs of three mandatory pieces. 

Good luck!  http://www.procoro.ab.ca/
