Openings for SATB Voices in Berkeley-based Sacred & Profane Chamber Chorus

Sacred & Profane chamber chorus has openings for voices in all sections (SATB). If you are an experienced singer with a healthy voice & a great attitude, please audition with us for this extraordinary 2015 season.

We'll begin the season in February 2015 with a Valentine's themed concert, featuring gorgeous love songs by composers such as Palestrina, Lauridsen, Lassus, and others. Our May 2015 concert, which will be performed with a full wind ensemble (!), will feature the Bruckner's Mass in E Minor as well as Stravinsky's Mass.

Kitka Seeks Female Vocalist

Kitka is accepting audition submissions for new singers with strong, beautiful voices and engaging stage presence. We are looking for women who are adept at singing in both open/chest voice and “pure” (light vibrato) head voice styles. Familiarity with Eastern European singing and language and music-reading ability is preferred. Accurate intonation, rhythmic capability, previous performance experience and strong ensemble singing skills are essential.
