I am back in the office after an extended Christmas break.  Our office has moved next door to room 201A in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre.  This new space is slightly larger and very bright.  If you are in the neighbourhood, do drop in.  There are two doors to enter now so don't be shy.  I am continuing to be in the office on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

New Brunswick Youth Choir Now Accepting Auditions

The New Brunswick Youth Choir is a four-day choral residency for singers between the ages of 16 and 24 which will take place a the Université de Moncton from May 7-10, 2015 under the direction of Scott Leithead.  NBYC is an excellent opportunity for serious young singers to work with a nationally-recognized choral conductor and to connect with like-minded students from around the province who share a passion for singing.

Auditions for the NBYC are now open.  All auditions will be recorded and the file emailed to the New Brunswick Choral Federation office.  The audition will consist of a song sung a cappella which demonstrates the singer's range, technique and vocal quality as well as a vocal exercise which is assigned by the NBCF.  In addition to the recording, the candidate will include a letter of recommendation by a singing teacher or choir director and a general information form which is supplied by the NBCF.  Deadline for submitting the audition recording and supporting materials is January 15, 2015.

For further information about the audition or any aspect of the New Brunswick Youth Choir, please contact Dianne Roxborough Brown at the NBCF:   506 453-3731 or
