Do you sing? Have you ever read a “web log?” If so, you should audition for Patterns of Inheritance.
The piece is about the internet — the entire libretto is composed of chopped up blog posts and wikipedia articles, and the orchestrations are fragments as well. Using constant movement and a cast of six singers and eight instrumentalists, we’ll use a mutually creative process to construct a one hour opera that will sound something like Philip Glass, or the Dirty Projectors. It goes up parents weekend (October 16/17/18), which will allow you to show off to mom and poppers.
We’re also looking for a viola player to round out the pit.
Signup sheets for voice or viola auditions will be available at the Theater Studios tomorrow, or just email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time. We’re very flexible!
Date: Saturday, Sept. 6
Time: 12-3:30 (we said five on the flyers, but we ran out of time)
Location: Theater Studios, East Room
