Maestro Potvin and his two groups are looking for serious singers.
If you are a professional or advanced singer, Musikay has paying opportunities for you.
If you seek an advanced community choir to join in Hamilton where you can reach new levels in choral skills, Villanella is the place for you.
Musikay is seeking experienced and motivated choral singers to make glorious music with other like-minded musicians in the Oakville and Hamilton areas. Maestro Stéphane Potvin has carefully crafted this ensemble into one of the most dynamic, challenging, and rewarding choral groups in the region.
Singers in all voice parts are invited to audition to become part of this exciting ensemble. Interested parties should be experienced choral singers, possess strong musicianship, be able to work a cappella, care for detail and fine work, and have solid self-preparation skills and discipline.
Hallmarks of Musikay include crisp intonation, blended sound, and superb phrasing. Musikay focuses mainly on renaissance and baroque music, but also performs Canadian repertoire.
Rehearsals take place two weekends prior to each program. Remuneration is based on a profit sharing system.
Villanella invites singers interested in performing sacred and secular SAB music from the fifteenth and sixteenth century to audition and join its ranks.
Villanella is a community based group that offers its members the opportunity to reach new levels in performance quality. If collegial learning, high standards of musicality, learning exceptionally beautiful music with other like-minded people, and good spirited humour interest you, then Villanella is the choir for you.
Singers interested in joining Villanella should have least three years of choral experience, a desire to improve their singing and musical skills, be able to work a cappella, care for work well done, and have solid self-preparation discipline.
Weekly rehearsals take place at Grace Lutheran Church, in west Hamilton.
Join Villanella and discover a whole new world of musical bliss.

Auditions for both groups are by appointment on June 4 & June 11 in Hamilton.
