Chamber Choir Ireland Auditions
Chamber Choir Ireland will hold in-person Dublin auditions for professional singers of all voice parts with Artistic Director Paul Hillier on Friday 8 October 2021.
We are seeking to grow our database of deputy singers with a view to regular positions should they become available.
Chamber Choir Ireland is the country’s flagship choral ensemble under the Artistic Direction of the internationally celebrated and multi-award-winning choral conductor, Paul Hillier. CCI’s repertoire spans from early music through to contemporary works with a substantial proportion of its work dedicated to new music. A typical working week/project is 20-25 hours of rehearsal with performances both nationally and internationally, and an average of 10 projects per year. CCI’s singers therefore have a very high musicianship standard, extensive professional singing experience, and experience of covering a wide-range of difficult repertoire in very short rehearsal periods.
Applications will only be considered from professional singers who can fulfil the above requirements, or those who are embarking on a professional singing career with demonstrable professional choral singing experience.
To apply for shortlisting, please submit the following:
-A short recording of you performing solo repertoire either with keyboard accompaniment or unaccompanied;
-A detailed biography that outlines music education, professional choral experience, and current professional singing commitments;
-Two written references ideally from people who know your singing in a professional choral context.
Deadline for submission of applications: Friday 1 October 2021 at 5pm.
