Chorus Needs For Amahl, we are seeking singers age 12 and up. We need a varied chorus of children and adults to play the role of townspeople. For Pinafore, we are seeking singers age 16 and up. The chorus rehearsal schedule is here.
The Role of Amahl We are also seeking a male singer between the ages of 9 and 12 to sing the role of Amahl. This role requires excellent musicianship and confident stage presence.
A Community Collaboration We want this year’s performance of Amahl to be the start of a community tradition in Baton Rouge, one that we repeat each year. We are seeking area churches to join us for this production by sharing your singers and your costumes, if you have them. After the performance there will be a Community Cookie Cheer for all of us to celebrate the holidays together.
