SLO Adult Chorus
The SLO Adult Chorus, the backbone of the company’s productions, is a leading chorus in Singapore, endeavouring to be a chorus of excellent grade and going the mile to set the bar of standard and quality.
Since its establishment in 1990 and its first appearance in SLO’s inaugural production Die Zauberflöte in 1991, the Chorus has actively performed in the company’s productions, concerts, engagement programmes as well as outreach programmes. Most recently in 2018, the Chorus staged their first Chorus Concert, under the direction of our Chorus Master, Terrence Toh. The Chorus Concert was a showcase a culmination of years of experience performing opera chorus masterpieces by Verdi, Puccini, Mozart, Rossini, Donezitti, Gounod, Mascagni, and many more. Although the Chorus is not considered a full-time occupation, our passionate Chorus members commit to understudy and playing roles in our performances.
SLO is always keen to explore new opportunities and welcome new members to share the art and joy of music-making with like-minded individuals who are passionate about the opera and choral singing artform.
We are always on the lookout for new members, aged 26 and above, who share our vision of quality music-making.
Candidates to prepare 2 songs/pieces that will best show the quality of their singing, one of which should be an opera aria. Art songs and show tunes can also be used for the audition. As you will mostly be performing the classical repertoire, we will need to exclude the following types of music for your audition:
- Popular music
- Jazz standards
- Church hymns and carols
You need not memorise your pieces, although it will be advantageous if you can; most of the performances will require you to memorise your music. You should also bring along extra copies of your pieces for the auditioning panel. Please note that SLO does not provide an accompanist for auditions, you will need to make your own necessary arrangements if you require one.
If you have always had a passion for starring in a choir or simply being a part of a captivating unison of voices, we would like to invite you to join us!
