Extending the Ocho 'family' .....
Now we are moving hopefully, out of the worst of the pandemic, Ocho is very ambitious for the future and is planning some exciting performances and adventures !
However, with most of the group also holding down full time jobs, there have been a few occasions where we have been unable to do all that we can or we should like to. So to allow for more flexibility to pursue the wider range of engagements that we seek, we have decided to expand the 8 singers to a 'family' of 12. This will allow for more performances but on each occasion, only 8 will sing ..... thus preserving our 'Ocho' ethos! We have already recruited an additional soprano and alto and this indeed saved one of our Christmas Concerts when an Ocho member tested positive with the dreaded Covid 24 hours prior to a concert. So we are now looking for an additional tenor and a bass, to join our family.
We have great fun singing but also look to achieve as high a standard as possible so we are looking for people with experience in choral singing and the ability to 'pick up' music relatively quickly.
We practice on a Tuesday evening in the Barrow on Trent area 8-10pm with singers attending as many practices as possible. We shall now be extending our programme of engagements to concerts, weddings, stately homes etc as we move into 2022.
So if you think you may be interested in auditioning for one of the vacant positions, please apply below and we shall organise auditions as soon as we are allowed to sing.
