Auditions

Interested in joining us?

We invite capable female singers to audition at any time. We are looking for women with ability in chest voice, pure head voice, and/or "open-throat" styles.

We want individuals with a good ear for tuning and pronunciation, the ability to blend and minimize vibrato, and interest in further development of these skills.

Singing songs from across Eastern Europe in the original languages, we memorize all texts and music for performance. We ask all members to be willing to offer and accept kindly-given suggestions for improvement. Previous performance experience is desired, and familiarity with Eastern European singing is preferred but not necessary.

As the initial step, please submit the following to info@svitanya.org or c/o Anne Ehrhart, 922 Montgomery Avenue G1, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010:

  • name, address, email, and phone numbers
  • short biography of your relevant experience
  • 2-4 min recording of you singing a song or two that reflect your voice’s range and timbre(s). Do not use accompaniment. If you submit your recording via email, please compress to < 5MB.

If you seem to be a likely fit, we will ask you to join us to audition in person over 2-3 of our weekly rehearsals. We look forward to hearing from you!
