Steve White, Head Choir Director at Vista Ridge HS, is also the Artistic Director and Conductor of Amphion [http://www.amphionyc.org/], a community choir for young singers. The group has performed at the TCDA Convention, and is an outstanding ensemble. He has sent along information about the audition process and rehearsal schedule for this summer. If you have the time this summer, I would HIGHLY encourage students to audition for this ensemble.
From Mr. White:
We would love to hear some of your kids audition for the group this year.
- Ages 15-23
- Community group for young singers.
- We do a mixture of world music, contemporary composers and popular music woven with spoken word.
What you will need to do:
- Interested kids need to prepare about 20 seconds of a folksong (basically anything in English that isn’t a pop/broadway tune), and
- be ready for some simple vocalizations and an AP Theory level sight-reading
Here are links to some of the stuff we have planned this summer.
