Apollo’s Fire announces auditions for their treble youth chorus-The Musettes!
This renowned youth ensemble is comprised of treble singers ages 10-17. The Musettes will perform for the December concerts of the acclaimed Christmas on Sugarloaf Mountain – An Irish-Appalachian Celebration.
This popular program created by Jeannette Sorrell in 2017 features the cast of the original “Sugarloaf Mountain” program (now a best-selling CD) alongside an expanded company to include fiddlers, dancers, Apollo’s Singers, and the Musettes. The project includes local Cleveland concerts as well as a performance at the Met Museum in NYC. 10 Musettes will be selected to perform in NYC with the cast!
The director of the Musettes is Apollo’s Fire’s Artist-in-Residence for Outreach Performances, AMANDA POWELL. Amanda is a respected voice teacher and frequent soloist with Apollo’s Fire and is known for her command of both early music and folk styles. Performances will be conducted by Jeannette Sorrell.
Singers will be asked to perform What Child is This [download PDF] OR Here we Come A-Wassailing [download PDF], as well as a second Christmas Carol or song of their choice. (examples include a folk song, art song or hymn) At the audition, singers will also be asked to vocalize.
