Small Group Auditions

Low-key tryouts for those interested in performing in a small group at the concert. Limited to a few minutes per group; we would just like to hear all potential small groups and provide general feedback. We are hoping to be able to fit about eight (give or take) into the program. That being said, we hope that everyone who wants to sing a small group can do so. This may involve doubling up and/or trading off verses with, for instance, 4 people instead of 2 to accommodate as many people as possible. Each person should not sing in more than one small group. Please also be aware that due to overwhelming interest, we will try to give priority to larger groups while still endeavoring to represent a wide range of Slav generations. 

Time: 2:30-3:30 pm

Place: Branford College Common Room, 74 High Street

(If you have extras of anything, and don’t mind sharing with friends, please feel free to bring them along.)
