PRO CANTU AUDITIONS

The audition season for 2011 is open! Anyone between the ages of 14 and 25 can audition.

Pro Cantus plans for next year include participation in a choral festival and competition in Greece during the July holidays, (cost R15,000). Weve also been invited to a once-off choir of the decade competition at Llangollen in Wales. This is a very prestigious competition, as only past winners of the Llangollen International Eisteddfod have been invited. This tour will be partially sponsored by the organisers and by friends of the choir in England. Depending on the choirs collective fundraising efforts this might mean choir members end up paying very little.

Choir rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings between 18:40 and 20:40 as well as Friday evenings between 18:40 and 20:45. Attendance of three weekend rehearsal camps are also compulsory for choir members.

Choir fees are based on a sliding scale depending on their financial situation choir members choose to pay anything between R50 and R200 per month.

There is also a FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE for the auditions

The next auditions are as follows:

Friday 8 October (from 18:00pm): SACS

Sat 9 October (from 10:00 am): SACS

Friday 15 October ( from 18:00pm): St Cyprians
