We’re so happy to have Vanessa Wilson and Joseph Tong joining us!!! Stay tuned for our first show this holiday season!
Do you sing really low? Or perhaps really high? If either apply to you then you should audition to become High Street Sound’s next Bass or Soprano! We are looking at filling these vacancies within the next month, so if you are interested, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing some new voices!
Come join us on Saturday afternoon for some great tunes to help ring in the holiday season! We’ll be decking the hall at Cha Island, December 12th at 2pm. We are also introducing our newest addition to the group: the talented and hilarious Gloria Wan! Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. Get them from any member of the group or drop us a line and we will hook you up!
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear”
Hope to see you there!
Hey look who it is!! The lovely Gloria Wan is the newest member of High Street Sound as our tenor/beatboxer. She is almost as excited to be with us as we are to have her!
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.
We just released our first YouTube video! We’re Tegan and Sara fans (and they’re Albertans too!), and really excited to put our own spin on one of their songs.
Let us know what you think, and please share!
Brett here! We are excited to be a part of the Opera NUOVA 2014/15 Dinner Cabaret Series! As an alumnus of the Opera NUOVA Young Artist Program, I’m ecstatic to that High Street Sound will be involved with the series. Be sure to check out the other acts as well!
