The LA-LAs Los Angeles Ladies Choir is now auditioning dynamic women ages 21-35 for a select, young, talented and sexy vocal performance ensemble, placing special emphasis on creating and performing innovative and edgy arrangements of contemporary pop, rock music and lyrical ballads. We aim to perfect our music, perform concerts with great artistry, gain a renowned reputation, book and perform at live events, record albums and eventually tour.
The LA-LAs will be comprised of a small group of 20-25 women, so the quality of each voice is equally important.
Qualified applicants must have the following:
- Strong vocal skill and intonation
- Serious choral experience
- Trained ear for harmonization and ability to blend
- Basic sight reading capability
- Ability to memorize challenging pieces
- Above all the enthusiasm and a deep passion to sing, rehearse and perform!
Rehearsals will commence in March and will take place at a West LA music studio on Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm-10:30pm. Kindly refrain from auditioning if you are not available to rehearse on Wednesday nights.
