Auditions are not required, though some basic musical knowledge is required.
Here’s the scoop for this semester
- Registration and first rehearsal- Monday, January 22nd, 2017 from 6:30 – 9:15pm in Room 115 of Altgeld Hall at SIU
- This semester’s program includes Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana and Make Our Garden Grow, from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide.
- The concert will be on Monday April 30, with just one dress rehearsal on Sunday the 29th from 2:00-10:00 (dinner provided between runs). We’re doing this so the Kaskaskia singers don’t have to come to Carbondale so many times.
- Check the Performances tab above for a post containing more information on the concert.
- The registration fee is $30, plus the cost of the music for Make Our Garden Grow. Singers are asked to provide their own Carmina Burana score. This is because because quite a few people already own one, and those who don’t can find a better price online than the sheet music purchasing companies the school uses. The Complete Vocal Score, with piano reduction, is sold by Amazon at http://a.co/3oQmKpF. The Choral Score without piano reduction, is at http://a.co/heQ1C6.
