HomeSwingle Singers Seek Alto

Alto Auditions!

The Swingle Singers are looking for a versatile female Alto to start in late September 2011.

The ideal candidate will be comfortable in jazz, pop and classical styles, with the ability to take any vibrato off the voice where appropriate, and sing softly throughout the vocal range. Good aural skills are essential as we are looking for a singer with impeccable tuning and rhythm who can perform to an extremely high standard, both as part of an ensemble and as a soloist. Strong reading skills are also an asset. This is a full time position. Each singer is unique and indispensable and the group does not use deputies. All Swingle repertoire is performed from memory and with microphones.

Applications should include CV, photo and 1 or 2 demo tracks - The demo does not need to be a professional studio recording - just a few bars/measures of something, even recorded on an iPhone is fine! 

USA auditions

 We will be holding audition days in NYC in late March between 22nd-26th; Eugene, Oregon between 13th-19th April, Boston between 6-9th June, and Montreal on the 11th of May. We will contact successful applicants directly about these auditions, please include the city most convenient for you so we can bear it in mind! Applications/Demos need to be received one week before the audition date you are hoping to attend (If none of these dates are possible, we will invite candidates we are interested in to audition in London in July).

UK auditions

Applications/Demos must be received no later than the 6th May.

All applications or enquiries should be made by email to Joanna Goldsmith-Eteson at swingle.auditions@gmail.com
