Auditions for Opera Tampa Children's Chorus
Mon., Oct. 28, 2013
5 p.m.
Rehearsal Hall at the Straz Center

The audition is open to boys with unchanged voices and girls in grades 2-8.

Students who are selected will be part of the distinguished cast of professionals and join them on stage for the fantastic performances of Bizet’s famous dramatic opera, Carmen

Children’s chorus participants will get to work side by side with professional singers, wear ornate costumes and gain experience in a professional show in the amazing Carol Morsani Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts.

The performance dates are March 14, 2014 at 8 p.m. and March 16, 2014 at 2 p.m. Students will need to be available for these dates as well as the required rehearsals. Click here for the full rehearsal schedule. 

For the audition, students will not need to prepare music. They will be asked to vocalize with the piano and read a short musical excerpt to assess their aural and reading skills.

The chosen students must register for the Opera Tampa Children’s Chorus class at the Patel Conservatory. The class will meet Mondays from 5 to 6 p.m. to rehearse for the production. The tuition is $25, and scholarships may be available.

The Opera Tampa Children’s Chorus is a fantastic opportunity for students to enhance their performance skills and get to be part of a professional show, as well as work with opera singers from around the world! 

In addition, students who complete the rehearsal and performance requirements will receive a $50 scholarship towards another Patel Conservatory music class.*
