AUDITIONS FOR PAID HOLIDAY SINGING JOBS:
Premier Vocal Entertainment (PVE) provides top-tier, professional vocal entertainment for year-round events in the greater Seattle area. We pride ourselves on working with the best professional singers in the area, compensating our singers fairly, and offering the highest quality performances to our valued clients. To learn more about PVE, please visit http://PremierVocalEntertainment.com.
PVE will be holding auditions for professional singers based in the greater Seattle area who are interested in performing during the upcoming 2019 holiday season and beyond. We are looking for excellent, reliable singers of all ethnicities who have a great vocal range, performance personality to spare, genuine excitement and love for Christmas caroling, the ability to sing tight harmonies, and (for The Jewel Tones) the ability to move well with choreography while singing. We are currently casting for the following 3 rosters:
* Holiday Harmony Carolers (Victorian) - SATB
* Holiday Harmony POP - SATB
* The Jewel Tones (Motown) - SSA or SAA
REHEARSALS & PAY
Singers must be available for rehearsals this fall and must also have significant availability to accept jobs between Black Friday and New Year’s Eve. Rehearsals are not paid. Caroling jobs pay between $40-50 per performance hour. Pay rate for The Jewel Tones varies and is on a per event basis.
Rehearsals for Victorian caroling typically begin in mid to late October. Rehearsals for The Jewel Tones and Holiday Harmony POP may begin in early October depending on gig scheduling requirements. Singers will receive all sheet music and rehearsal tracks prior to the start of rehearsals. Each singer must completely learn all music on their own BEFORE their first rehearsal. Notes are not taught during rehearsal. The purpose of the rehearsal process is to gel artistically and musically with colleagues, reinforce memorization, and achieve an extremely high level of performance polish.
Both Victorian and Pop caroling require singing for several hours while standing and/or strolling. Singers must have excellent intonation, the ability to blend, and the ability to minimize vibrato. Singers interested in auditioning for Holiday Harmony POP and The Jewel Tones should be able to sing in a pop/Motown style, including the ability to access full chest/belt voice and chest/head mix. All music must be completely learned on your own prior to your first music rehearsal. Music must be memorized for all performances.

Please only apply if you are a professional singer based in the greater Seattle area with good availability for rehearsals this fall and the ability to accept a lot of jobs between Black Friday and New Year's Eve. You are welcome to audition for more than one group if you are proficient at more than one musical style. Further audition instructions and specific repertoire to prepare will be provided to those singers who receive an audition time. Women who audition for The Jewel Tones will be taught a short choreography excerpt to perform during their audition so please bring/wear appropriate heels.
Auditions will be held on Sunday, August 18, 2019 (3:00-6:00 PM in Studio B) and Monday, August 19, 2019 (7:00-10:00 PM in Studio I) at Theatre Puget Sound (Seattle Center Armory Building, 4th Floor).
