SING WITH THE CHORUS OF WESTERLY!

Friday, June 29th, 2012

The Chorus of Westerly is looking for new child and adult singers for our 2012-13 concert season. This coming season marks new music director Andrew Howell’s first year with the Chorus of Westerly. All voice parts are needed, but we are especially looking for tenors and basses. Anyone age 8 (as of 9/1/12) or older may audition for the Chorus for the upcoming season.

New Children and Teenagers
Tryouts – July 2, 2012, 3 pm to 8 pm, or by appointment, Kent Hall, 119 High Street, Westerly, RI
Call 401.596.8663 to schedule a tryout or email lee@chorusofwesterly.org

What makes the Chorus so unique is the inclusion of children in our regular membership ranks. In most seasons, we have between 65-80 children singing with the adults on each performance. Children who are age 8 or older (as of 9/1/12) may become part of the Chorus of Westerly. If your child is interested or you think might be interested (even a little!), please call or email the Chorus office to schedule a short, simple, and relaxed singing tryout with Mr. Howell. Tryouts will be on July 2, 2012, 3 pm to 8 pm, or by appointment. Note that we do not expect children or teenagers to have a previous training in music, singing, or be able to sight read. Experience for new children and teenagers is not required to join. It is our hope that the Chorus will serve as your child’s first level of musical training that hopefully goes on for many years.

Children are expected to attend rehearsal twice a week (for the first year, on Monday afternoons and on either Tuesday or Thursday afternoon for an hour, in subsequent years on Monday and Friday afternoons for an hour), sing rehearsals during concert week (schedule will be shared at the tryout), and commit to singing the entire season. Children of the Chorus (including new singers) are invited and encouraged to attend a special chorus camp week at Ogontz Camp in New Hampshire that takes place each August (this year, August 12-18).

New Adult Singers
Auditions – July 9, 2012, 5 pm to 8 pm, or by appointment, Kent Hall, 119 High Street, Westerly, RI
Call 401.596.8663 to schedule an audition or email lee@chorusofwesterly.org

The Chorus is in need of adults singers for all voice parts but we are in particular need of tenors and basses. For adult auditions, a choral singing background is strongly preferred by not necessarily required. With adult singers, the purpose of each audition is to hear each singer’s tonal quality and to ensure that each singer can “carry a tune.” Joining the Chorus of Westerly requires a commitment to a weekly rehearsal schedule and a more intense concert week rehearsal schedule. Regular weekly rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

The Season

Apply to the CAA International Travel Grant Program

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

CAA invites individuals to apply to the International Travel Grant Program, generously supported by the Getty Foundation. This program provides funding to twenty art historians, museum curators, and artists who teach art history to attend the 101st Annual Conference, taking place February 13–16, 2013, in New York. The grant covers travel expenses, hotel accommodations, per diems, conference registrations, and one-year CAA memberships. For 2013, CAA will offer preconference meetings on February 11 and 12 for grant recipients to present and discuss their common professional interests and issues.

The goal of the program is to increase international participation in CAA and to diversify the organization’s membership (presently seventy-two countries are represented). CAA also wishes to familiarize international participants with the submission process for conference sessions and to expand their professional network in the visual arts. As they did last year, members of CAA’s International Committee and the National Committee for the History of Art have agreed to host the participants.

Are You Eligible?

Applicants must be practicing art historians who teach at a university or work as a curator in a museum, or artists who teach art history. They must have a good working knowledge of English and be available to participate in CAA events from February 11 to 17, 2013. Applicants must be able to obtain a travel visa to visit the United States for the duration of the conference. Professionals from developing countries or from nations underrepresented in CAA’s membership are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants do not need to be CAA members. This grant program is not open to graduate students or to those participating in the 2013 conference as chairs, speakers, or discussants.

How to Apply

Please review the application specifications and complete the application form. If you have questions about the process, please email Janet Landay, jlanday@collegeart.org, project director of the CAA International Travel Grant Program.
