The Corazon Vocal Ensemble will be holding auditions on the afternoon and evening of September 6 in Nelson.

“Anyone age 13 to 23 who loves to sing is welcome,” says the group’s director, Allison Girvan.

Corazon is a 65-voice youth choir based in Nelson. Over the past 10 years the group has gained a reputation throughout western Canada for its vibrant presence, professional presentation, surprising repertoire, and great voices.

Corazon is a powerful incubator of local talent. Many young people have gone on to success in music or theatre bolstered by their vocal training in Corazon. In 2009, Nelson city council named Corazon the city’s cultural ambassador for the year.

Allison Girvan has an international reputation as a singer, choir director, and mentor for young people.

In the upcoming year, Corazon will be travelling to a choir festival in Edmonton in November. There is also an option for singers to travel to Cuba in April 2012.

Membership requirements include an annual membership fee, attendance at a weekly rehearsal combined with online study, and participation in several concerts throughout the year.

Benefits include detailed musical training, participation in a fun and serious community of young performing artists of various ages, the opportunity for mentorship by the director and older singers, and the invitation to expand your musical and personal horizons.

If you wish to audition, email Allison Girvan at alligirvan@gmail.com for audition instructions and an appointment.
