Brighton Festival and Glyndebourne are bringing together an intergenerational chorus of women and children for a new choral work in Brighton Festival 2019.
The piece will will focus on the nature of motherhood and childhood, and will be conducted by Sian Edwards. We are looking for singers to bring this piece to life and we will be auditioning in the following age brackets:
Glyndebourne Youth Opera 1 (aged 9-13)
Adult female voices (aged 21 or over)
Family groups are encouraged to apply as this work is an exploration of the relationship between mothers (of any age) and their children and grandchildren.
How to Take Part
Auditions will take place on Sunday 30 September at Glyndebourne. You will audition in small groups and are not expected to prepare any material in advance, although you will be asked to sing briefly on your own at some point during the audition.
