We are preparing our Summer concert and you may be interested in auditioning for one of the roles in Cavalleria Rusticana.

There will be two performances – Friday 10th July at 7.30pm at St Peter’s in Hammersmith and Sunday 12th July at 5.30pm at St Saviour’s in Hampstead.

Performances will be on score in their original language, with Cavalleria Rusticana taking the first half of the concert and the second half consisting of two complete Verdi scenes (Macbeth banquet scene and Traviata Act 2 Scene 2) plus an extra chorus-only item. Soloists will be expected to sing in the choruses of items in which they are not soloists.

We rehearse on Thursday evenings (6.30-9.30pm) at Coleville School in Notting Hill (W11 2DF), and plan to begin rehearsals on 23rd April 2020.

Our fees are currently £90 per term and that covers our professional staff expenses/venue hire etc – we are not-for-profit and our motives are purely to provide performance opportunities for singers. Please see our website to further understand what opportunities we are offering.

Auditions will be on Thursday 26th March in the evening at Coleville School in Notting Hill, London (W11 2DF).

We’d like to hear the following:

‘Voi lo sapete, o mamma’ and Santuzza’s solo from The Easter Hymn ‘Innergiamo il Signor non e morta!’ til the end of the chorus.

‘Mamma, mamma’ (final aria)

‘Il cavalo scapita’

Stornello di Lola ‘Fior di giaggiolo’

Any appropriate mezzo/contralto aria

Please also be prepared to sing something of your own choosing.
