Solo Auditions for the ACS 2016 season of Handel’s “Messiah” will be held at Snowmass Chapel on Monday, October 17th.  Please contact Paul Dankers at paul@aspenchoralsociety.org in order to schedule an audition time slot.  Kevin Kaukl will be the accompanist for the auditions.  Kevin is offering his services to help you prepare your audition for a fee.  His e-mail address is kevinkaukl@gmail.com.  Soloists should prepare the following selections:

Soprano:  “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion”
Alto:  “O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion”
Tenor:  “Ev’ry valley shall be exalted”
Bass:  “But who may abide the day of His coming”

Please note that preference will be given to soloists who are also available to attend 80% of the scheduled choir rehearsals and sing with the choir.  Please check your schedule to confirm your availability regarding our rehearsal, dress rehearsal, and performance schedule.

ACS hopes to engage 2 soloists per voice part and divide the 4 concerts between them. Each soloist will do ALL of the solo repertoire for their voice part at each of the 2 concerts to which they are assigned.  ACS Performs all of the music from Part 1 of “Messiah” plus the “Hallelujah” and “Worthy Is The Lamb/Amen” choruses.
