Rhode Island/NE Singers- Audition for us! Join us for this innovative program highlighting Gertrude Stein’s legacy as an American LGBTQIA icon, prolific artist, and feminist Jewish writer. Small honorarium involved. Presented at the Contemporary Theater Company is Wakefield, RI as part of Springboard Season.

We are looking for 3 singers to fill out roles for Ned Rorem’s Three Sisters Who Are Not Sisters and perform 1-2 art songs with text by Stein cabaret-style. Rehearsals TBD based on performers’ schedule. We especially encourage LGBTQIA+ performers to apply. While all genders, ages, identities, and orientations are welcome, we will not be considering singers who are enrolled in a full-time academic program and/or who primarily reside outside New England. Sopranos who consider themselves zwischenfach (performing both mezzo and soprano repertoire) and countertenors who are comfortable in the listed tessitura are encouraged to apply for Ellen as well.
