Spirito! Singers is currently holding auditions for the 2019-2020 season. Based in the western suburbs of Chicago, Spirito! offers not only music excellence but also opportunities for service, touring, and lifelong friendships. While auditions are a necessary part to the selection process, they are held in a relaxed environment, and are used to determine voicing, intonation and music theory level. Spirito! has three ensembles; Bravura, Ragazze, and the Men of Spirito! They perform four concerts annually. A variety of repertoire is presented, from musical theater to folk, sacred and choral masterpieces.
The Spirito! choristers receive outstanding vocal and musical training. “I wanted a challenge so I auditioned for Spirito!,” said Bravura member, Elise Husemann. “After my first rehearsal, I knew this was going to be something I stuck with. You can’t get this experience anywhere else. Plus, the repertoire is just unmatched.”
Bravura is Spirito!’s performing, touring, and recording ensemble for young women entering 9th-12th grade. These young ladies rehearse on Sunday afternoons in Elmhurst.
Ragazze is the Spirito! performing and training ensemble for girls entering 5th-8th grade. With three rehearsal locations, Downers Grove, La Grange, and Elmhurst, rehearsals are held on weeknights and singers can choose the most convenient site. Ragazze members also receive curriculum based music theory training as part of the weekly rehearsals.
The Men of Spirito! is a performing ensemble for men, 18 years old or older. They produce a rich sound and add a varied, entertaining repertoire to the concerts. The Men rehearse on Tuesday nights in Elmhurst.
Service is an important part of the Spirito! mission. Each ensemble performs 3-5 service events a season at local churches and community events across the Chicagoland area. “We know that local involvement elevates the experience for each of these young girls and underscores the importance of making a difference in their community,” says Molly Lindberg, the Artistic Director and Founder of Spirito! Singers.
The Spirito! Season mirrors the school year and auditions occur prior to the start of the season. Summer offers the only opportunity for singers who wish to participate in the 2019-2020 season. Auditions are held at the Spirito! office. For more information or to schedule an audition, call 630-581-5440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
