Chorus Auditions 2015-16 Season

Auditions

We now have scheduled two possible audition dates:

  • Tuesday, August 18, 2015, starting at 7PM, or
  • Monday, August 31, 2015, starting at 7PM

W e would like to schedule each person within a 30-minute time slot. (That doesn’t mean your audition will last 30 minutes – just that it will be basically within that 30-minute period.) We’ll be at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 7611 Park Lane, Dallas (north side of Park Lane across from NorthPark Mall)

If you wish to audition and have not recently provided us with a resume, please do so as soon as possible by  e-mail. Be sure all contact information is provided – e-mail addresses, phone numbers (including cell), and mailing address. If you have any digital audio recordings of yourself that you can send, or a link to one, that would be delightful and helpful!

For the audition, please plan to sing TWO prepared pieces by Bach, Handel, Telemann, Buxtehude, Monteverdi, Schütz, or one of their contemporaries. An accompanist will be provided, so you will need to bring legible scores for the accompanist. You may also be asked to sight-read. You will be evaluated for both solo and chorus positions.

Many thanks for your interest in Dallas Bach Society! I look forward to hearing from you.

The Historical Cello in Germany

Join DBS for our first house concert of the season on Friday/Saturday night November 7/8!  Our principal cellist, Eric Smith plays a Bach suite for solo cello and Beethoven’s Sonata in G minor, plus a splendid Adagio from Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach. Hear for yourself how Bach’s amazing solo suites sound on an instrument from his time, and how the change of style and of the cello bow led to a different kind of music in the early Beethoven sonatas for cello.

The menu for the Casa M (Flower Mound) event is set and attached here for your review!

We entertained until nearly 2am at the Casa M concert (Friday night) and were delighted to see many new faces whom we sincerely hope to see regularly at future concerts.

Review: House Concert – Bach Sonatas for Viola da gamba – October 19, 2012

Our first House Concert of the season was Bach Sonatas for Viola da gamba with Brent Wissick a smash hit!  We got a glowing review from Theater Jones on the performance.  Below is an excerpt from the review:

 

Article by: Gregory Sullivan Isaacs – Theater Jones

Viola da gamba specialist Brent Wissick and harpsichordist James Richman expertly played the sonatas for an audience that gave them a well-deserved ovation. Those in attendance represented a wide range─from connoisseurs of Baroque music to folks that were new to the entire concept. The concert was equally enjoyed by one and all. Converts were definitely made.
