Have you got a Sense of Sound?

Award-winning choir is auditioning new members

Published on December 27th 2012.

Have you got a Sense of Sound?

Are you a man? Do you enjoy choral? Can you hit a low note or are you a woman aiming a bit higher? 

Any of that and the award winning Liverpool choir, Sense of Sound Singers, wants to hear from you.

The very vocal ensemble, who were finalists in BBC1's Last Choir Standing, are due to hold some auditions in the New Year. “We are particularly on the hunt for more male singers,” says organiser Jennifer John. 

“We have an abundance of wonderful altos and a significant smattering of strong tenors but we desperately need more baritones and basses. In addition, we also require more sopranos.”

Sense Of Sound is an a cappella choir and was the first contemporary group of its kind to reach the grand final of Radio 3's Choir of the Year competition. 

They have played at Glastonbury, the opening weekend of Liverpool's Capital of Culture 2008, do gigs the land over and are respected in high places. Their patron is Damon Albarn, no less.


Fancy being part of it? If so, the two-staged audition process will take place at the end of January at The Bluecoat in School Lane.

The first stage, on Sunday 27 January, will be individual auditions (one a cappella song of your own choice) and if successful you will then be invited to take part in stage two on the evening of Monday 28 January which will be the group auditions. 

“In stage two we will gauge your ability to harmonise, work effectively in a team and blend well vocally and physically. At this stage, you will be invited to learn some repertoire alongside current Sense of Sound Singers choir members,” says Jennifer.

For more details contact her here or call 0151 702 7799 in office hours. 

It all sounds ace, and, hopefully, so will you.
