Audition Process

Please bring a prepared selection to the audition that highlights the best qualities of your voice. This can be an art song, hymn or a selection from a choral piece that you know. Be prepared to sing this a cappella.

Test of your vocal range

Test of your sight-reading abilities

Schedule comparison & discussion of commitment level with Loren Pontén

Logistics

People have joined Opus 7 to rehearse in detail and perform with excellence the most challenging and beautiful works of the a cappella choral repertory. Opus 7 singers are good to excellent sight-readers. Those that don’t have good sight-reading skills spend whatever time is needed outside of rehearsals learning their parts on their own. To that end, it is understood that when singers commit to a project, they are expected to know their part by the second rehearsal.

Rehearsals occur normally on Wednesdays from 7:15 – 9:45 p.m. with occasional rehearsals on the weekends especially the week of the concert.

Opus 7 prides itself in excellent ensemble singing. We all know that this depends on everyone’s attendance, and that every rehearsal for a given concert requires each member’s full priority. By committing to a concert, it is understood that members will attend every rehearsal for that project.

Concert: Holiday Series Concerts — Hymn to the Creator of Light, by John Rutter

John Rutter's beautiful double-choir motet, Hymn to the Creator of Light, was written for the dedication of the Herbert Howells memorial window in Gloucester Cathedral in 1992. Few music teachers in twentieth-century Britain were more influential than Howells, who greeted his first class at London's Royal College of Music in 1920 and his last over 50 years later. Rutter (b. 1945) carries Howells' torch in his dual roles as a prolific choral composer and conductor of the superb Cambridge Singers. As always, Rutter is sensitive to the text, but he does especially lovely work here with the word 'light'.

Tickets: Trinity Episcopal Parish will be accepting donations at the door. $15 per person is suggested

An elegant prelude to the holiday season Lessons and Carols is a wonderful English tradition dating back to 1880, but popularized by the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge in 1918. The general format is a reading from the bible (usually the King James version, as it is an Anglican tradition), starting with younger members of the chorus and progressing “up” through the group. The reading is followed by a song by the choir related to the reading, followed by a carol sung by the whole audience.

Allegra has been invited to join the Byrd Ensemble to present this Lessons and Carols program. The Byrd Ensemble is a highly acclaimed Seattle-based professional ensemble that performs regularly in the region and internationally.

Saturday, December 7, 2019Dec 7, 8:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: $25 advance/$30 door/$15 students/youth

In medieval Europe, the Christmas season was always celebrated in a big way. The harvest was in, and the short, cold days of winter were all the inducement needed to stay close to the fire and busy oneself with feasting, merriment and song. One type of song, the carol, was so frequently written with Christmas gatherings in mind that today we can hardly imagine any other kind. The joy of Christmas imbued church music as well with the same tuneful glow. The Medieval Women’s Choir tours England and the Continent to bring you the most inspiring music of the season.

Concert: O Yule Full of Gladness: Christmas In Scandinavia — Songs and carols from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland
Saturday, December 7, 2019Dec 7, 8:00pm at St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Scandinavia has contributed many traditions that we see celebrated in the United States, such as Advent wreaths, candles, and calendars. Christmas seals were first seen in Denmark. And the Scandinavian culture in turn adopted other European Christmas traditions, such as the German Christmas tree and the Dutch Santa Claus. The musical traditions are equally charming. Scandinavian Christmas music, often based on folk songs, blends cheer and melancholy into a unique sound.

The Seattle Choral Company will present a broad range of music from this region, from simple folk song arrangements to sophisticated classical settings of traditional and modern texts, including these works:

“Advent” by Otto Olsson
“Forunderligt at sige” by Carl Nielsen
“Jul Jul, Strålande Jul” by Gustav Nordqvist
“Det hev ei rose sprunge” by Ola Gjeilo
“Ave Maris Stella” by Edvard Grieg
“Gaudete” Suite arr. by Anders Öhrwall
“En etsi valtaa loistoa” by Jan Sibelius
“Sankta Lucia” arr. by Barlow Bradford
“Marjatan Jouluvirsi” by Einojuhani Rautavaara

The image of the Phoenix rising out of the ashes comes originally from Egyptian mythology but was taken over by the early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ from the dead. From its opening bars, this work, with its unique combination of instruments and voices, succeeds in transporting both performers and listeners. Indeed, this transcendence to a "resurrection experience," the essence of this piece, is captured so vividly through the musical medium as the drama of the text unfolds.

Welcome to a musical and spiritual journey that takes a deeper look at what it means to “belong”, from our role in the larger global family (It Takes a Whole Village), to a more intimate look at our identity as supported by those whom we love (Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child). The concert closes with several pieces that challenge our sense of belonging by offering various ideals on how to live one’s life, re-envisioning “home” not as a place or a group of people, but rather “home” as a state of mind. From Paul Simon to Johannes Brahms, everyone will find something to love in this concert!

We have celebrated Seattle as a magnificent, flourishing city for the arts. This season, we are choosing to address a heartbreaking reality impacting a great number of youth in our city: homelessness. This problem of teens, youth and young adults making Seattle’s streets their only homes is growing at an alarming rate. We have a powerful story to tell through our music. We want our choristers, audiences and supporters to join us as we look at this population of vulnerable youth. With special guests, “The Pilgrims”, a men’s chorus dedicated to performances that benefit the plight of homeless youth, we will take an honest look at the problem and sing our hopes for a brighter future.

Concert: Psallite! — Celebrating 30 years of the Medieval Women’s Choir
Sunday, March 15, 2020Mar 15, 3:00pm at Seattle First Baptist Church, Seattle, WA
Tickets: Advance:$25/Door:$30 /Students/youth:$15

Thirty years ago, Margriet Tindemans founded the Medieval Women’s Choir on the premise that medieval music is as accessible as it is inspiring. She believed that any choral singer could learn to sing and to love this extraordinary repertoire and, through it, gain an appreciation and understanding of the culture that created it. Three decades on, Margriet’s choir, and her vision, continue to thrive. To celebrate our 30th season, we will revisit some of medieval repertoire most closely associated with the choir, as well as new pieces written for us over the years by Seattle composers Karen Thomas and Peter Seibert; by long-time MWC collaborator Shira Kammen; and by Margriet Tindemans herself.

Concert: Swan Song: Schubert's Final Year — An evening devoted to the music of Franz Schubert
Saturday, March 14, 2020Mar 14, 8:00pm at First Free Methodist Church, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Biographers gasp in wonder at Schubert’s productivity during the final year of his life. He completed the “Symphony No. 9 in C Major” (“The Great”) as well as the “C Major String Quintet,” one of the greatest chamber works ever composed. He penned six songs that wound up in the song cycle “Schwanengesang” (“Swan Song”), the three “Piano Pieces” and the last three piano sonatas.

Finally, Schubert completed his greatest choral work, the “Mass No. 6 in E-flat Major” and two related shorter anthems, the “Tantum ergo in E-Flat” and the “Offertory in B Flat,” all of which will comprise our concert program on March 14. The “Mass No. 6 in E Flat,” not performed until a year after his death, was his most ambitious work, employing his own subjective romantic feelings, and the influence of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach.

Concert will feature:
“Mass No. 6 in E-Flat, D. 950”
“Tantum ergo in E-Flat, D. 962”
“Offertory in B-Flat, ‘Intende voci,’ D. 963”

As our vision stretches toward the horizon, our thoughts are free to wander. The open spaces we'll sing about in this program might be real or imagined, topographical or psychological. Join us as we journey together with The Bike Let Loose, by Edie Hill and Light of a Clear Blue Morning, written by Dolly Parton (Yep, Dolly Parton), with an evocative arrangement by Craig Hella Johnson.

Concert: The World Beloved

Sunday, March 22, 2020Mar 22, 3:00pm at Eastside Bahá'í Center, Bellevue, WA

Suspend any doubts you may have about classical choral “crossover”: Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass is tremendously powerful music, doing justice to both its parental musical styles. Incorporating bluegrass instruments, Barnett adapts the ancient Mass text for a modern sensibility, dealing with issues of social conscience and building community.

As Barnett blends two musical worlds, so do the composers featured in the first half of the concert. Harry Burleigh and William Dawson were among the pioneers who transferred African-American spirituals into a choral guise, a tradition later carried by Moses Hogan. Kevin Siegfried dresses nineteenth-century American Shaker tunes in sumptuous modern harmonies. Writing in the mid-twentieth century, Frenchman Maurice Duruflé went back even further for inspiration: to medieval chant.

"In 1984 I was very fortunate to visit Uganda, where a dream maker made me a beautiful drum with a snakeskin head. I'll never forget sitting in the place to come home and seeing by chance the baggage handlers loading my drum with incredible respect and care. The drum to them is a living spirit.

The poems I set are a celebration of how that spirit is brought to life. The piece enacts the ritual of constructing the drum, whose component parts are drawn from the surrounding nature - a nature that gives of itself almost sacrificially. We hear how the goat is killed for its skin, how the tree, which bleeds cedar-dark when cut, bestows the drum's body, and how the sticks and rattles are taken, all to begin a new life as companions to the gods, music and the dance." Bob Chilcott

British composer Ethel Smyth’s Mass in D for choir, orchestra, and soloists is a monumental achievement. Written in the mid-19th century, it was dismissed by critics who deemed female composers unequal to their male counterparts. Seattle Pro Musica hails this stunning and seldom-heard piece as more than equal.

We pair this groundbreaking work with Mozart’s beloved “Great” Mass in C minor for one performance only in the magnificent acoustic of St. James Cathedral.

Tickets: $25 Adult $20 Seniors and students $15 Alumni

We learn from the creativity and imaginations of children. We watch children at play and wonder over their brilliant, inventive young minds. Music, both singing and movement, seem to flow without restraint from young children. As we close our season, we present “Flights of Fancy”, a concert that invites each of our choirs to be playful, light-hearted, imaginative set to performers sharing choral settings by some of the great composers of our day. We will sing of imaginary creatures like Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky and tell of barnyards that come to life at nighttime and swings that send a child flying and planes that spin heavenward close enough to touch the face of God. You will not want to miss this experience! And like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory may I invite you to “Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination!”

Concert: How Can I Keep from Singing — with Tacoma School of the Arts

Members of the Northwest Chamber Chorus have been singing for a long time. Most of us started in choir when we were in high school or earlier, and now, we truly can’t “Keep from Singing”. We'd like to pass that torch on to the next generation. In this program we are joined by students from the Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA). We will sing side-by-side with these young musical spirits, and we expect that they will teach us as much or more than we teach them. Our collaboration includes one performance at Phinney Ridge Lutheran and one at Tacoma’s Rialto Theatre, just one block from SOTA. Featured composers will include Giselle Wyers, Margaret King, Sarah Quartel, Volckmar Leisring, Jake Runestad, Pärt Uusberg, and Randall Thompson. You’ll hear music from Zimbabwe, Estonia, South Africa, Venezuela, the German Renaissance, and Washington state. Join us as we celebrate the progress and the talents of tomorrow’s singers.

Concert: Across the Sea
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 7:30pm at Church of the Holy Cross, Redmond, WA
Sunday, June 7, 2020Jun 7, 3:00pm at Eastside Bahá'í Center, Bellevue, WA

Ever since the earliest days of human civilization, the ocean has captured the imagination. What is on the other side? And how can one possibly get there? Terra australis, a new work by local composer Bronwyn Edwards, our Composer-in-Residence this season, recalls those Europeans who first ventured to her native Australia, incorporating didgeridoo into the choir. Her Leonosa recounts an actual shipping vessel that took lumber from Washington to California in the 1840s. Another local composer, Michael Austin Miller, rejoices in the ancient explorers.

Of course, not all such exchanges were peaceful: Horizons, by the South African composer Peter Louis Van Dijk, movingly tells of native life that became slaughtered by European conquerors. Jaakko Mäntyjärvi’s Canticum calamitatis maritimae vividly depicts another tragedy: the sinking of the MS Estonia during a storm at sea in 1994. But rest assured that all is not dark. For example, Benjamin Britten extols St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music, who emerged from the sea. And with much lighter fare as well—particularly Across the sea from the Wailin’ Jennys—the joys of the ocean are always near.

Concert: Endings
Sunday, June 7, 2020Jun 7, 3:00pm at Trinity Parish Episcopal Church, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $20; Seniors and students $18

All endings bring the hope of renewal. Musical descriptions of the Last Judgment and the Archangel Michael’s final defeat the devil include works of Scheidt, Vulpius, Gumpelzhaimer, and the Sacred Harp tradition. Jonathan Dove’s thrilling cycle, The Passing of the Year, closes our season with Tennyson’s words, “Ring in the thousand years of peace!”

Concert: Masterworks V: Beethoven's 250th — Mass in C, Op. 86
Friday, June 5, 2020Jun 5, 7:30pm at Glendale Lutheran Church, Burien, WA
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 7:30pm at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, Bellevue, WA
Tickets: $15/adult, 17 & under free with adult

For the fifth concert in our Masterworks series, ChoralSounds Northwest and VocalSounds Northwest collaborate with Northwest Symphony Orchestra to celebrate 250 years of Beethoven by performing his powerful and exquisite Mass in C, Op. 86. This earlier setting of his two masses shows Beethoven’s respect for Mozart and Haydn in this genre but also displays his own unique voice that continues to astound listeners two and a half centuries later. This performance will be offered in Burien and Bellevue.

Concert: Rachmaninoff's Divine Liturgy — A masterpiece of Russian sacred music
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 8:00pm at St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Sergei Rachmaninoff composed two major a cappella choral works—the “Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom” and the “All-Night Vigil”—that displayed his Orthodox faith in a manner that was innovative and fresh. In 1910 he turned to the sacred service of his church and with amazing speed composed the monumental “Divine Liturgy.” Afterward he said, “Not for a long time have I written anything with such pleasure."

Less well-known is Rachmaninoff’s early choral work, “Concerto for Choir,” written in 1893. It was both a culmination of a great tradition and a starting point for so much of what followed in Russia. Such “concertos” were popular in the eighteenth century as additions to the Orthodox divine service.

The “Three Sacred Hymns” from the Orthodox liturgy were composed in 1983 by Alfred Schnittke. The Russian conductor Valery Polyansky had requested an a cappella work for his choir, and though at first Schnittke seemed reluctant, he apparently woke in the middle of the night and wrote down these three pieces, and handed the manuscript to Polyansky the following day. The work was only published posthumously.

Featured works:
“Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Op. 31” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Concerto for Choir, The Grave and Death Could Not Hold the Mother of God” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Three Sacred Hymns” by Alfred Schnittke

Concert: A Sequestered World — Love, contemplation and ecstasy behind the cloister walls
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 8:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: Advance:$25/Door:$30 /Students/youth:$15

Accustomed as we are to our bustling, secular lives, it can be difficult to imagine the richness of the world that developed behind the walls of the medieval cloister. Although they were under the absolute authority of the church, women there enjoyed an agency and self-direction that were hard to come by on the outside. Their most meaningful personal relationships and an often-profound spiritual renewal were tied to that community, and this autonomous life spawned religious practices and unique musical repertoires that are little-known today. Through their music, the MWC takes you behind the walls to experience the metaphysical landscape of the sequestered life.
