Now holding auditions for choral members - all sections!
Carolina Vocal Arts Ensemble is an audition-only community choral organization dedicated to enriching the Wilmington area with top-level musical events performed with full orchestra and professional soloists. We are interested in finding people who want to be a part of our team effort to make great music come to life while having fun.
We are currently looking for singers for all sections and will be holding auditions during May and June on dates to be announced. The audition will consist of a warm-up, range test and short guided sight-reading example. There is no need to bring a prepared piece.
If you are interested in auditioning, please send a brief e-mail with your name, your own e-mail, phone number and voice part to email@example.com We will contact you with audition information.
Calling all High School and College Students who love singing:
We Want you! CVAE has the first Student Singer Apprentice Program in Wilmington. There is an unparalleled opportunity to participate in great musical works with professional musicians and soloists. Students are mentored as musicians and as members of a community organization. Some of our apprentices have gone on to college to become professional musicians; others have pursued a variety of careers, while continuing to enjoy music in other ways in their lives.
There may be opportunities for choral-related Senior Projects. While the student develops her or his own project, possibilities could be topics like choral conducting; web site analysis for a non-profit organization; or linkages between individual, sectional and full ensemble work in the concert preparation.
If any of this sounds like you - please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, voice type, year of school and singing experience. We will contact you about an audition!
This sixty member choral group performs with world-class soloists and an orchestra of professional musicians. Under the direction of Stephen Field, the ensemble typically performs two annual concerts, presenting a wide variety of choral repertoire.
The mission of Carolina Vocal Arts Ensemble (CVAE) is to bring to southeastern North Carolina world class choral performances of the great sacred and secular choral works and operetta pieces. As we embark upon our seventh season, this is exactly what has been accomplished. As expressed by a patron, "CVAE is a national treasure right here in Wilmington."
