Solo Auditions

Choir – auditions for the Let Me Fly and Clear Blue Morning solos are going to be before/after choir on Thursday, May 9th.  Because of the proximity to the concert itself…we will be looking for performance ready levels of preparedness from auditionees.

Memorized Selections

We are asking singers to memorize the following selections for our concerts at St. Pauls:

– “Zum Sanctus” from the Deutsche Messe [Schubert]

– My Spirit Sang All Day [Finzi] – the concert opener

– Will the Circle Be Unbroken

– The Lord Bless You and Keep You [Lutkin]

In addition, it would be fantastic if the following were memorized or very close:

– Shenandoah

– Joshua fit de Battle

– Let Me Fly

– Ave Maria

FROM KRISTI:   May concert AND Rockies tickets will be on sale this week.  Here’s a link to the Rockies tickets online, where you can buy with a credit card if you like!  CRS will be singing the pre-game Star Spangled Banner:  https://crs.ticketleap.com/crs-at-colorado-rockies-2019
