Audition for Pacifica Singers
Pacifica Singers is a select vocal ensemble which exists as part of the Vancouver Chamber Choir organization. The ensemble performs with Jon Washburn and the Vancouver Chamber Choir on three or four concert programmes each season and also presents two independent concerts with its own director, Fiona Blackburn.
Pacifica Singers are looking for experienced choral singers to join this advanced level ensemble. Prospective singers should have extensive choral experience and sight-reading skills.
The repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to 21st century works. Opportunities include singing with the Vancouver Chamber Choir and Orchestra at the Orpheum, and working with directors Fiona Blackburn and Jon Washburn.
This spring's repertoire includes folksongs, spirituals, motets and Morten Lauridsen's Lux aeterna, to be sung on Good Friday at the Orpheum.

All voices (SATB) are invited to audition January 9, 14, 16, or 21
Pacifica Singers provides an ideal performance venue for experienced and motivated choral singers whose goal is to make music at a very high level. By providing direct exposure to the world of professional music making, it is an experience of great value for singers intending to make a career in music.
Current members live throughout the lower mainland, with many serving as conductors, music educators, and/or professional singers in their communities. Interested singers are welcome to audition for the choir this month.
Most rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings, with occasional weekend rehearsals and additional dress rehearsals as required.
SPECIAL MESSAGE TO PACIFICA SINGERS ALUMNI
It is exciting to continue in the footsteps of Pacifica Singers' previous directors. I would love to reconnect with alumni and welcome the opportunity to meet you to talk about singing together. If you are interested in returning to the choir, it would be fun to share some of the repertoire and new ideas with you. They just might pique your interest! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's start working together.
