Auditions February 2011
Benslow Music Trust are holding auditions in February for a new and ambitious course led by the amazing Julian Perkins and Judy Tarling and intended to complement the Benslow Baroque Opera Course, which takes place in alternate years.
they are looking to recruit a team of strong players and singers capable of preparing a public performance in Hitchin's wonderful parish church of St Mary of Handel's great and moving oratorio Theodora in less than a week.
Participants leave after breakfast on the day following the concert, so there's plenty of opportunity to celebrate your achievements in the traditional Benslow manner the night before.
Singers who wish to audition for solo roles should be advanced students or musicians of professional or near-professional standard. they will be playing in period style at A = 415 Hz.
