The Rose Ensemble announces openings for all vocal parts. Successful candidates will possess extraordinary musical abilities, a strong and enthusiastic work ethic, and an engaging stage personality. Basic requirements include: at least two years of concert performance experience, solid sight-reading and non-English (typical Western, Latin, and Hebrew and/or Church Slavonic) language-singing skills, and the ability to switch musical styles with ease, excelling in both ensemble and soloistic settings.
The Rose Ensemble's schedule is filled with a variety of local, national and international performances, recordings, educational programs and special projects. While the group's continuously growing and demanding performance calendar varies from season to season, 2015 will be particularly busy.
For those candidates considering relocating to Minnesota for this position, resources and connections will be available to help secure other freelance work, such as a church soloist position.
To apply, please prepare the following:
- Current résumé
- Two letters of recommendation
- Audio and/or video samples featuring three works of contrasting style: at least two should be non-English language; one can be of folk style and/or from oral tradition; two should be from pre-18th-century source material.
Submit no later than December 1, 2014 to:
