The solo female ensemble Zaphyra, based in the Southern Arc, will be holding auditions. All members perform solo and ensemble pieces in an array of different styles (classical, pop, Christian contemporary, musicals, etc.)

Rehearsals take place in Fayette County once a week. When a production date or deadline nears, rehearsals might increase. Recording projects are also in the works.

Auditions will be held in August for two openings for its 2009 – 2010 season. Pre-requisites: performers must be in their early twenties to late thirties; have the ability to meet rehearsal schedule, be punctual, have a willingness to learn and have a love of music; be a team player with positive attitude; have theatrical experience and additional instrument and music reading skills is a plus. Light Coloratura or Lyric Sopranos must be classically trained and able to handle foreign languages and harmonies if necessary.

Prepare one aria in foreign language that demonstrates range and vocal agility (if coloratura) and a non-classical piece. Mezzo/Altos need not be classically trained but able to sing harmony; all styles welcome. Prepare one ballad and one up tempo song or one aria and one non-classical piece if classically trained.

Please call 404-358-2950 or email for more information or an appointment or visit
