Specializing in a cappella music of the Renaissance and the 20th and 21st centuries, Ars Nova Singers of Boulder, Colorado is presenting its 30th concert season in 2015-2016. The professional-core vocal ensemble conducted by founding Artistic Director Thomas Edward Morgan is composed of 36 selectively auditioned choral musicians from the Denver/Boulder metropolitan region.

Audition Information

 

Members of Ars Nova Singers are highly skilled musicians with extensive experience in choral singing and a desire to sing at the highest levels of vocal ensemble performance. We welcome the opportunity to hear and connect with singers who share our passion for the choral art.

The 25-minute audition will include one prepared song (any language; can be an excerpt from a choral piece; no gospel or pop music, please), sight-reading, tonal memory, and general vocalizations.  An accompanist is provided.

As of August 15, 2017, all positions are filled for the fall of 2017. However, we audition singers year-round, and place people as openings arise.

 

PAID POSITIONS FOR PROFESSIONAL SINGERS

We are a semi-professional ensemble, in that we have a paid core of professional singers who serve as section leaders, soloists, and choral pros. A limited number of paid positions are available during the season. To be considered for ANY PAID POSITION, please submit, by email (to Artistic Director Tom Morgan - tom@mrgn.us):
    a)  a current vocal resume or curriculum vitae
    b) an audition recording (mp3 format), demonstrating current or recent solo work; the recording may include either excerpts or complete pieces.
    c) two references, including phone numbers and email addresses.

Qualified professional candidates will be invited to a live, individual audition in July or August. Applications for paid positions will be reviewed on a rolling basis as they are received, until positions are filled.

Professional singers in Ars Nova are currently paid $55/service (both rehearsals and performance; up to a 3-hours per call). Choral Pros are generally contracted for a minimum of 4 rehearsals per project.

As of August 15, 2017, our professional positions are filled for the fall of 2017. However, we audition singers year-round, and place people as openings arise.
