Extending the Ocho 'family' .....
Notwithstanding the current situation with regard to the ban on singing , 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 recruited the lovely Rachel back into the alto line and we are now looking for an additional soprano, 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 Thursday evening in the Ashby de la Zouch / Burton area 8-10pm with singers attending as many practices as possible. We shall be extending our programme of engagements to concerts, weddings, stately homes etc as we move into 2021.
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.
If you want to have an informal chat about it all, give Derek a ring on 07741 330453.
