Auditions for Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus Sep 17, Sep 24, NYC

Dear Friend of the Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus:

The Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus (JPPC) of New York, which specializes in Yiddish choral music, will hold auditions for all voice parts on:
Monday evening, September 17 and
Monday evening, September 24,
on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

The 40-member chorale, which has recently performed at Shea Stadium, Lincoln Center, and the North American Jewish Choral Festival - as well as released its first CD, "Zingt! A Celebration of Yiddish Choral Music" (which has drawn raves), - is committed to the highest quality of performance.

The auditions are by appointment only and can be scheduled by calling (646) 602-2007 or emailing .

Candidates must have a good ear, be able to sing in harmony and have a voice that blends.

*No* knowledge of Yiddish is necessary. Translations are always provided.

Rehearsals are held weekly from September through early June on Monday evenings on the Upper West Side.

The JPPC is conducted by Binyumen Schaechter.

More info about the JPPC can be found at www.thejppc.org.

The JPPC is a non-discriminatory organization and welcomes singers of all faiths; membership in the Chorale is open to qualified singers without regard to religion, race, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, or disability.
