VORSINGEN for SINGERS for MajorTonic, a new a cappella group.
I am looking for SINGERS to join me in MajorTonic, a new professional a cappella group. I sing and compose (more details about me on www.barrywebb.eu and pictured above) and manager of MajorTonic.
The music we do: New songs/compositions and classical to modern arrangements and covers.
All styles of voices wanted, opera, classical, musical, jazz, pop, Soprano, Alto (male or female), Tenor, Bass/Baritone, as the basic 4 to 5 piece structure.
Ability to read music is an advantage, but quick learner possible as quick learning essential.
Ability to Beatbox or rap also an advantage, not essential.
Available to rehearse from November, until the premier event on 13/14th December performing Christmas music. This will include traditional and new arrangements. The event will be in the area of Bamberg and Hassfurt, maybe further away, to be confirmed. It is hoped to raise some money for homeless and addiction charities with special reference to music therapy. Music can be a major tonic for health.
First auditions in Germany will take place on 25th October 2014 in Zeil am Main. Bring a backing tape or simple piano accompaniment. A short sight-reading/sing-back test may be made.
Please E mail with short CV, a photo and perhaps any recording to show your voice. Any age or nationality welcome. People who can sing. On receipt of your E mail, I will let you know about the audition details.
Further auditions will be held in Prague in late October. And in Germany in November if necessary.
The Christmas event will be for the a cappella group to sing 6 to 10 carols/songs at intervals around a town, venues to be confirmed depending on the various permissions and licenses required if any. If the people like the singing I hope they will support the work of MajorTonic . The carols for the Christmas event so far are:
O Come O Come Emmanuel,
Kommet, ihr Hirten
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
In the Bleak mid winter
Carol of the Bells, original Leontovych version
Ding dong merrily on high
Carol of the Bells, Pentatonix type version
New Rap Carol
The above in original or new arrangements depending on who is available.
Ad hoc future plans include a CD of new works and arrangements/covers, and concerts in Germany, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom. Preparation is being made for an event in 2015, to coincide with 2015 being Plzen’s year to represent European Culture as a City. In the Summer a concert will take place either in Prague or Plzen or in the herb gardens of an old monastery building in Klaster Nepomuk near Plzen which it is hoped can be made into a center for art and spiritual healing.

I do hope this is of interest. Please write for further information if needed. www.majortonic.com firstname.lastname@example.org
