Volti auditions qualified singers on an ongoing basis. If you are a professional singer with a high level of musicianship, as well as a love for adventurous contemporary music, you are invited to audition for Volti.  We are next hearing auditions on June 7 and June 14, 2017.  Please email barbara@voltisf.org for more information. Include your resume (.pdf attachment is fine).

Qualified singers will have:

  • Substantial vocal training and musical education,
  • High level of ensemble experience,
  • Advanced sight-singing skills,
  • A desire to work with new music,
  • A cooperative and energetic personality,
  • Willingness and availability to commit to intense rehearsal schedule.

Normally, Volti’s season consists of three concert cycles plus special events (like fundraisers, house concerts, occasional outside contract jobs, and the annual Choral Institute weekends), beginning in September or October and continuing through May.  A concert cycle is usually two or three performances over a single weekend (Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday afternoon); it might vary from that pattern occasionally. Rehearsals are generally held at the First Unitarian Church on Franklin Street (@ Geary) in San Francisco, over about 8 weeks preceding each concert cycle. Rehearsals are three hours long and are usually on Wednesday nights (7 – 10 PM) plus some Monday nights (7 – 10 PM). Dress rehearsals may be on other nights (including Fridays) depending on the availability of the venue. Singers are paid on a per service basis.
