Opera Companies
I'm wondering if anyone has some experience with auditioning for opera companies.  I'm thinking of auditioning for a chorus part for the Philadelphia Opera Company, but have no idea what to expect.  I also don't know what a typical rehearsal schedule would be like.  Any info would be appreciated.

Current Mood: anxious

This has been cross-posted to a few other communities, but I'm doing this for info's sake, so I think it's worth it.

Could any/all of you listen to these clips and tell your thoughts on this person's voice? Fach? Estimated age? Anything else (by the way, these clips are anon. for a reason, so if you know who this is, please don't say anything).

Doing a research paper...
Questions for young singers: (The questions might not make absolute sense because they were made with a specific person in mind... Do your best! Thanks!)

1a. How has your range differed in relation to your age? Can you give specific examples? (e.g., at age five my range was: *insert range here*)

1b. Where did you switch registers at a younger age/ where were your breaks? What are they now? Have there been large changes, or has this been relatively consistent?

2a. At what age did you begin to practice consistently?

2b. At what age did you begin to study with a teacher?

3. Did you ever belt (sing very high in chest voice)? Do you still? How do you think this has affected you?

4. How has your tone changed as you grew?

5. At what age did you first become aware of your vibrato? (I don't mean to say, "at what age did you begin to vibrate," though knowing that would be helpful. I mean to say, "at what age did YOU become aware of your vibrato?")

6. What is your current range?

7. What are your current "breaks"? Is there any register in which you feel more uncomfortable than others?

8. What are your practice habits? Have they differed significantly since you were younger? How do you think your practice habits effect your development as a vocalist?

9. Have you discussed fach with your teachers? If so, what have they said? Do they think that you might be a coloratura or that you might become a mezzo?

Hello Music Lovers,

Just thought i'd introduce myself, I am a soprano (though how good is up to interpretation). I've been singing for 10 years, my favorite kind to preform is Opera and Broadway.

I'm a 20 year old Musical Theatre major at University in Kingston, Canada, but I did spend a year studying in London, Uk, which was the push over into pursueing this career.

Anyway, hi people i'm hoping for some spirited interesting talk.

Perfect Pitch
Hi Guys!
I hope it's okay that i'm posting this hear, but since this is a music community, I thought some of you might be interested!
Hope it's okay that I'm promoting an LJ community here. If it's not, I'll delete it.
Do you wish you had perfect pitch? DO you know someone who does? Do you want to know more about it? Do you ever question what it's like for people who have perfect pitch, people who can pull notes out of thin air? Well, if any of these things apply to you, or you are just feeling like joining, hop on over to
and see what the fun's all about!
Hope to see you there!
P.S. I noticed my pal
is in here, and she's part of this community! Yay for her! So just ask her about it. Heheh rins.

I know this may sound very naive of me, but how does one put together a music resume? Is there like a certain template you must follow like in professional resumes? Do you count scenes you have done from an opera, or does it have to be the whole thing? I have a repertoire sheet, but I know its not the same. Thanks in advance...

I am new to this community, and I believe one day soon I will be a Spinto Soprano with dramatic tendencies. So, is that ok?

Hello All!
Dearest Divas, I am quite excited about the start of this new community! I've never managed a community before so help and suggestions are welcomed! I noticed communities for altos, barritones, basses and tenors but none for the true divas of the music world - the sopranos!
First of all I'd like to say that the word "diva" is not what it used to be, it often carries a negative conotation these days, but I'd like to change that!
In Italian "diva" means goddess. In English - A term of adulation for a leading female opera singer, usually a soprano. It doesn't mean bitchy or self absorbed and I think sopranos today need to try to change that. First of all diva is a word reserved for classical singers, not pop singers the word diva has been given a bad name.
Anyway, I hope to get this community active, it'll be a place for advice on pieces or vocal health or anything else sopranos deal with, so jump on in!
