A Cappella Ensemble Auditioning for 2022-2023 Season

ONCUE, one of Calgary’s most established a cappella ensembles, is seeking new members for the 2022/2023 season.

We are currently auditioning singers for all voice parts. Singers with vocal percussion experience are particularly encouraged to audition.

Auditions will be held on Monday, July 25, 2022, from 6:00 – 9:30pm at the ATCO Performing Arts Centre.

ONCUE is a semi-professional vocal ensemble that blends tight harmonies with genres of pop, rock, and musical theatre to create a unique brand of top-notch entertainment. ONCUE is a part of the Youth Singers of Calgary, a unique performing arts organization that has provided opportunities for performers of all ages to express themselves through music, dance and theatre since 1985.

This ensemble has performed at many events in Calgary and surrounding areas including four times at the Podium Choral Conference, Northern Harmony in Edmonton, and DCINY’s Total Vocal with Deke Sharon at Carnegie Hall in New York.

ONCUE has a very busy performing season, consisting of a wide range of Christmas performances (including weekdays), concerts, staged shows at the Jubilee with the rest of the Youth Singers company, private parties, bookings with the Calgary Stampede, and other events. We are looking for individuals who can commit to Thursday evening rehearsals throughout the year and who can commit to a variety of performance dates and times as scheduled.

Youth Singers of Calgary has been singing in person since fall 2021 and anticipates the same in the coming year. If you have specific questions about YSC’s COVID health and safety measures for this season, please let us know.

What to Prepare?

  • 1-3 min vocal piece of any style, to be sung without accompaniment.
  • You will be asked to fill out your rehearsal availability upon arrival.
  • You will be asked to sing a few short sight-reading, rhythm and harmony exercises.
