Spirito! Singers, an elite choral organization located in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, is currently accepting auditions for the 2018-19 season for the Ragazze and Bravura ensembles. The Ragazze Ensemble includes girls in 5th- 8th grade, and the Bravura Ensemble features young women in the 9th-12th grade. Singers are admitted at the beginning of each season, so this is the only time of year members can join one of the most coveted musical ensembles in the area.
In its Tenth Anniversary Season, Spirito! attracts some of the area’s most talented voices. Drawing singers from the Western Suburbs, including La Grange, Western Springs, Villa Park, Elmhurst, Hinsdale, Westmont, Lombard, Downers Grove and beyond, this respected choral organization sings a musically rich and challenging choral repertoire from a variety of genres. In addition, its Ragazze Ensemble incorporates curriculum-based music theory training into its rehearsals. All ensembles rehearse weekly with a schedule that mirrors the school year. Service is an important part of Spirito!’s mission and singers are also provided with opportunities to give back to the community.
“Our goal is to not only create an environment for our girls to learn and experience exceptional repertoire, but to grow as musicians and as caring, confident young women,” says Artistic Director Molly Lindberg. “Spirito! has a strong philosophy of unity, loyalty and teamwork. Our motto is, ‘We have no bench!’ While our rosters are formed based on a successful audition, once accepted there is no competition between our singers.”
Committed to creating enriched experiences for its singers, Spirito! also offers opportunities for touring each season. Past tour sites include Nashville, Boston, Toronto and San Francisco for the Bravura Ensemble; Milwaukee, Indianapolis and St. Louis for Ragazze.
All Spirito! auditions are held in a non-intimidating, and relaxed setting. Spirito! does not require preparation of an audition piece. Auditions run from mid-April through mid June.
With Ragazze Ensembles located in Downers Grove, Elmhurst and La Grange, there is an opportunity for young singers to get involved in the organization close to home before joining the high school group, Bravura.
