Armonico Consort will be accepting virtual auditions from both consort singers and early music instrumentalists throughout April – July. Please send a video recording to Hazel Lawrence to apply, applications must include the following:
- 1-2 minute spoken introduction detailing your background and performance experience. We would also like to hear a little about you, and your hobbies/interests!
- Singers: Performance of two short pieces, or excerpts from larger works (2-3 minutes) of your choosing. One from the Baroque period and the other from Romantic onwards.
- Instrumentalists: Performance of two short pieces, or excerpts from larger works (2-3 minutes) of your choosing both on baroque instruments or one baroque and one modern.
- An accompanying CV/biography.
Please note that we will only consider auditions from professional musicians or those who are in their final years of studying and intend to follow a career as a performer. Applicants must also be resident in the UK, this includes international musicians who have a permit to work in the UK.
Armonico Consort are primarily an early music ensemble and will therefore take the highest interest in performers with a background in music of the baroque period and earlier. This being said, we frequently work with projects using music from the romantic to modern, so please let us know your preferences.
