The Rose Ensemble

Auditions & Employment Opportunities



The Rose Ensemble announces openings for one soprano, one bass and one alto. 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 professional singing 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, the 2014-2015 season is 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
- Audition CD 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.
