Attention High Street Community! We are sad to announce that we’re losing our Tenor, Brett Bews. Brett has moved to Vancouver, so we are holding AUDITIONS for a NEW TENOR in September!
For those of you who don’t know us, High Street Sound is an a cappella ensemble (“mouth band”) based in Edmonton, specializing in contemporary music ranging from jazz to pop and others. We gig around town, and normally meet twice a week for rehearsal and shenanigans. We are a fun-loving group but also have serious ambitions and intend to continue making a big noise in the music scene. Also, we have an ever-growing library of originals and arrangements that’s always open to new contributions.
The audition process will include a prepared piece of your choice (to be sung solo), a prepared piece from the High Street library (to be sung with the rest of the group), and a non-prepared piece to sight-read with the rest of the group. Additionally we’ll chat with you to learn about your background, interests, and find out about any additional assets (beatboxing, composing/arranging, instruments) that may help our decision.
If this position interests you, please contact us at HighStreetSound@gmail.com. Projected audition dates are September 4 and 6, but we’re also flexible, so let us know if there’s a conflict.
