Chamber Choir Ireland will hold auditions with artistic director Paul Hillier at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, Ireland, for a regular first tenor position on Friday 7 September 2018. Applications will only be considered from professional singers, or those embarking on a professional singing career with demonstrable professional choral singing experience. At audition, candidates should sing two pieces in different languages - one Baroque or early Classical, the other Romantic or early modern art song, and there may also be a short sight-reading test.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 17 August 2018. Applicants must submit a recording of solo repertoire (with or without keyboard accompaniment), a detailed biography outlining professional choral experience and current professional commitments, and two written references - ideally from people aware of the applicant's singing in a professional choral context.
