Premiere is excited to announce that we’re holding auditions for new members! We’re looking for ladies who have significant high school, collegiate, or post-collegiate a cappella experience. Expected time commitment is one rehearsal per week (Wednesday evenings, generally in west Los Angeles or mid-city), and one to three gigs per month around Los Angeles. We’re looking especially for sopranos and altos who can belt, and vocal percussionists, but ALL voice parts will be considered!
For the first round, we’re accepting auditions via email. Please prepare a video of yourself singing a verse and chorus from two contrasting, contemporary songs. These songs should be performed a cappella (no instruments or backing tracks). If you are a vocal percussionist, please also include a short sample of you beatboxing in the video. Upload the video to YouTube as “unlisted.” In your email, please provide the video link and the following information:
- Voice part
- A cappella experience (include past/current groups)
- Any leadership roles held in those groups
- Any arranging experience
- Any vocal percussion experience
- LA neighborhood(s) where you live and work
Email your online audition to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 7th with Summer 2018 Audition in the subject line.
We’ll be holding in-person callbacks on Wednesday, 6/30, and we’ll be sure to respond to everyone who submits an online audition.
A little more about us…
We’re a group of young working women, proud that Premiere brings us together for a musical outlet outside of our day jobs. Songs we like to sing usually have a powerful belting solo, a lot of attitude, and/or a message of female empowerment. Premiere has been together for four years, and in that time we’ve done a lot of exciting things, like performing for TBS and an LA Galaxy game, hosting the Los Angeles A Cappella Festival, and becoming great friends. If this sounds like the place for you, we’d love to hear from you!
Questions? Feel free to contact us! Thanks for your interest, and we look forward to singing with you!
