CHORUS ANGELICUS HOLDS AUDITIONS SEPTEMBER 15TH AND 22ND, 2016

Internationally Acclaimed Chorus Seeks Talented Boys and Girls Ages 5 to 18 Who Love to Sing

Joyful Noise’s Chorus Angelicus, the premiere children’s choir of Connecticut, is holding auditions for boys and girls ages 5 to 18 on September 15th and 22nd, 2016, in Torrington. Previous singing experience is not necessary, but audition appointments are required.

Joyful Noise’s program focuses on training children who may not necessarily have had previous singing experience, but who love to sing. The challenging repertoire they master requires a thorough education in music theory and ear training, and demands their utmost in terms of diligence and self-discipline. They become accomplished musicians as they learn to blend their voices to create the unique sound that is Chorus Angelicus.

Under the artistic direction of Gabriel Löfvall, the choirs, currently in their 26th season, provide a comprehensive music education and performance program for children of diverse cultural and economic backgrounds in and around northwest Connecticut. Joyful Noise comprises 4 progressively experienced choirs with choristers ranging in age from 5 to 18 who hail from communities throughout Northwest Connecticut, the Farmington Valley and the Greater Hartford Area.

More than 50 boys and girls participate in the choirs of Joyful Noise. Two training choirs, ages 5-10, meet once weekly for ear and vocal training. The junior and senior choirs, Chorus Angelicus, ages 10-18, meet twice weekly for vocal training, sight-reading, music theory, history, and genres in order to prepare the young artists to face and appreciate a demanding concert season. In addition to the learning and performing opportunities, all children participate in workshops, weekend music camps, tours and fundraisers.

High-profile performance opportunities are an important and integral part of the program and include two culminating Winter and Spring concerts each year, plus our annual Investiture and All Choirs concerts. Joyful Noise’s premier choirs, Chorus Angelicus & Gaudeamus, perform with the Hartford Symphony, Waterbury Symphony, Paul Winter Consort, UConn Symphony Orchestra, and Clannad, among other prestigious music presenters.

There is no charge to audition. Auditions will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, located at 220 Prospect Street in Torrington, Connecticut between 6:30pm and 7:30pm. For more information or to make an audition appointment, please email office@chorusangelicus.com or visit www.chorusangelicus.org.
