Audition! We are looking for a new bass

Audition Thursday October 26th 2017

ARS NOVA Copenhagen is one of the world leading vocal ensembles particularly in early and contemporary music. The group consists of 12 professional singers and are lead by artistic director and chief conductor Paul Hillier. With an annual concert season in Denmark, tours to a long list of countries and a long catalogue of critically acclaimed albums the group is more in demand than ever before.

The job: ARS NOVA is a professional ensemble, and singers are paid by the hour. There are typically 6-8 projects of 2-3 weeks a year, which corresponds to roughly 400 hours. Rehearsals are normally held on week days from 10am to 2pm. Rehearsals can take place
at other times. When employed for a project you are expected to participate in all rehearsals, concerts and tours. The first project you would be involved in will start in the end of February 2018.

Your profile: We are looking for a bass with a solid low range. We expect you to be experienced as an ensemble singer as well as a soloist
on an advanced professional level. We need a flexible singer with a sound that fits into the
voice group, combined with the initiative of the solo singer. ARS NOVA depends on the commitment of the permanent singers. An interest in and active effort for the continued positive development of the group is expected.

The Audition: is held on Thursday October 26th from 2pm at Lutherkirken, Randersgade 3, Copenhagen or in rare cases by special appointment. Candidates must prepare two self-chosen songs or arias (not operatic) of contrasted style and language. Your sight-reading and ensemble-singing skills may also be tested.
