MANSON - The Manson Meridian Singers will be holding auditions from 6:45 until 9 p.m. Sept. 6 at the Manson Northwest Webster High School Vocal Music Room in Manson.
Anyone who loves to sing is welcome to try out. This short audition will take approximately 10 minutes and will consist of vocal warm-ups to determine voice part and range, singing a section of a prepared song, and also singing a short portion of sight-reading from another song.
Interested singers may try out individually or in groups of two. If trying out in groups, the two voices should not sing the same part. Possible tryout combinations might include soprano and alto, tenor and bass, or any female and male part.
The Meridians will be starting the 42nd season this year. Returning to direct the group again this year will be Jerrold Jimmerson, Manson. Piano accompanist this year will be Lori Erkenbrack, Rockwell City.
This season's annual shows will be held on Feb. 2 and Feb. 3, 2013. The Saturday show will start at 7:30 p.m., with the Sunday matinee starting at 2 p.m.
Singers who have participated in any previous Meridian productions for three years or more do not need to audition, but do need to contact Jimmerson Sept. 1 to inform him that they wish to participate this season.
Interested singers may pick up an audition packet and sign up for an audition time during regular business hours at the Collmann Agency in Manson, 1011 Main St. The phone number is (712) 469-3346.
