Singing excitement! Auditions for Voices in the Wind now open!

Eric from Ranui

Voices in the Wind, the newest auditioned choir covering the whole Wellington region, and based in Porirua, have two audition dates (Wednesday 29 January and Wednesday 5 February) now available before we begin our second season. We are especially keen for you to come along if you are an alto or bass.

The first year was amazing, with 15 public performances, lots of fun, numerous standing ovations, and fantastic music throughout. If you have ever thought of singing with a group of highly talented and supportive individuals, this is the choir for you! And we have another year of terrific music and opportunities already lined up.

Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, and location is Mana (Porirua), very convenient to everywhere, with good public transportation and parking. Music director is Eric Sidoti, who also directs the Kapiti Chorale, Hutt Valley Gang Show, and St John’s choir on Willis Street, and formerly directed the Kapiti Chamber Choir and the Wainuiomata Choir. And we have the fabulous Jennifer Scarlet as our regular accompanist. Voices in the Wind cover a huge range of repertoire at a high quality level, yet we ensure that we are accessible to both singers and audiences alike. Fun and fellowship are both in abundant supply.

To sign up for auditions (rehearsals begin on 12 February), please contact our membership secretary Linda van Milligan at lindavanmilligan@gmail.com. If neither of the audition dates are suitable for you, contact us anyway and we can work out an alternative date for an audition. Give it a go – you will only regret it if you don’t!
