The Grammy-nominated Pacific Edge Voices will be holding open auditions on January 16th & January 23rd 2017 for all voice parts.
Each season has a varied repertoire that often includes concerts of classical work from all eras, African-American spirituals and, in our A Cappella Jazz & Pop concert, every conceivable genre – ‘hardly strictly’ jazz & pop! Past collaborations have included Bobby McFerrin, Sufjan Stevens, Meredith Monk, and Sweet Honey in the Rock. We worked with Dave Brubeck to produce two CDs of his choral music, and our Grammy nomination was for a performance of Bernstein’s Mass with Kent Nagano conducting. Explore our website for music samples and more information on our history.
The second half of season 2016-17 will include a classical concert in April (incl. works by Whitacre, Meecham, Fauré), a fundraiser in March, our Jazz & Pop concert in June, and periodic special events and retreats. Each is an opportunity to stretch the boundaries of what a chamber chorus can be!
We rehearse in Berkeley (Monday nights; near North Berkeley BART) and perform in both San Francisco and the East Bay. Solo opportunities are auditioned from within the chorus, so both solo and choral singers are welcome.
