An­swer cho­rus call

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Stage -

WA Opera is look­ing for new mem­bers to join the com­pany’s cho­rus.

Au­di­tions will be held at His Majesty’s Theatre on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 31 and Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 2.

WA Opera artis­tic di­rec­tor Brad Co­hen said the cho­rus sat at the heart of any opera com­pany and fea­tured ded­i­cated artists com­bin­ing their cho­rus work with busy lives and other job com­mit­ments.

“For those who love to sing and per­form, a cho­rus like ours can be the ideal plat­form,” Co­hen said.

“The com­mit­ment is in­tense, how­ever, and the skills re­quired go well be­yond just singing. There is the team col­lab­o­ra­tion, the self­s­tart­ing at­ti­tude needed to pre­pare out­side of cho­rus re­hearsals, a love of lan­guage and theatre, act­ing abil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity.”

Co­hen said he wanted to in­fuse the com­pany with new en­ergy and was look­ing for new tenors in par­tic­u­lar.

Au­di­tion in­for­ma­tion and reg­is­tra­tions are avail­able at www.wa­di­tion-en­quiriesques­tion­naire.

Reg­is­tra­tions close on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 14.
