GILBERT & SULLIVAN SOCIETY 50TH ANNIVERSARY GALA 'An Evening with Gilbert and Sullivan'
Wed 16 February (Week 4) West Road Concert Hall
Singers wanted for 'An Evening with Gilbert and Sullivan' - a grand gala concert to launch the 50th Anniversary of the Cambridge University G&S Society. The event will feature a mix of Gilbert & Sullivan's best-loved songs and scenes, works inspired by the duo, and reminiscences from the society's history. It's a fantastic opportunity to celebrate fifty years performing the works of this mighty pair.
Sat 22 January, 1-5pm - Trinity Hall Music Room Mon 24 January, 5-9pm, Caius Bateman Room
You will be asked to sing a song and read some dialogue, so please come prepared to sing a song, preferably G&S or a similar musical style. If there's a particular solo/ensemble song you're dying to perform in the concert, we'd be more than happy to hear it, or if not just pick anything. Your chances will not be affected either way. Similarly, if there's a particular scene or monologue you want to do, please come share your ideas with us and perform it, otherwise dialogue will be provided. If you have a self-written comic sketch about Victorian light opera tucked up you sleeve, bring it along! G&S and other well-known scores will be provided.
Group auditions very welcome for ensemble numbers - you can audition both for a solo and as part of a group.
For some suggestions, please see the attached list, or feel free to choose your own favorite! If you need the sheet music, email our artistic director Rosie at firstname.lastname@example.org with your song choice BEFORE MIDNIGHT ON WEDNESDAY 19TH JANUARY with your name and college and we will send you a score. A comprehensive collection of music and libretti from all the operas is also available online at http://math.boisestate.edu/gas/.
If you're an instrumentalist and would be interested in joining our orchestra and playing some of the most deliciously upbeat music ever written, please e-mail Sunil at email@example.com.
