Manson Meridian Singers to hold auditions

MANSON – Auditions for the Manson Meridian Singers will be held from 6:45 to 9 p.m. Sept. 5 at the Manson Northwest Webster Junior-Senior High School vocal music room in Manson. This short audition will take approximately 10 minutes and will consist of vocal warm-ups to determine voice part and range, singing a section of a prepared song, and also singing a short portion of sight-reading from another song. Anyone is welcome.

The group’s 43rd annual performance will be Feb. 8 and 9.

Interested singers may try out individually or in groups of two. If trying out in groups, the two voices should not sing the same part.

Potential members can pick up an audition packet and sign up for an audition time during regular business hours at the Collmann/Agents, Inc. office, 1011 Main St. Manson. Their phone number is (712) 469-3346.

Returning to direct the group again this year will be Jerrold Jimmerson, Manson. Piano accompanist this year will be Lori Erkenbrack, Rockwell City.

Singers who have participated in any previous Meridian productions for three years or more do not need to audition, but they do need to contact Jimmerson before Sept. 1.

If there are any questions about the group or the auditions, contact Jimmerson at (712) 469-2797.
