Revv52, Music that sings!

Sing with us!

Experienced singers love the challenge and camaraderie of Revv52.

September 6, 2014 Update: We still need a couple of male singers for our new season. It’s not too late to apply.

If you love to sing, we’d love to hear from you. We welcome people of all ages from all musical backgrounds, professions and life experiences. Some musical or vocal training is essential (especially the ability to sing in harmony) but most importantly you must have a passion to sing.  Our auditions include singing a prepared song, performing a “scat” to a twelve-bar blues riff, pitch matching, rhythm tests and sight reading.

We promise you a lot of fun, a great opportunity to learn from a collective group of very talented people, and to be part of one of Calgary’s best kept traditions!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR MUSICAL EXPERIENCE!

If you’re interested in auditioning with us, at any time you can download our Revv52 Audition Guidelines and attach your answers to an email anytime, so we can learn more about you.
To help you prepare for the audition, read the Revv52 Audition Q&A.

Once you have read the guidelines and understand the commitment that it takes to become a Revv52 member, you can schedule your audition time by email. Auditions will take place on Wednesday, September 10 or the 17th at the latest.

Our Member Expectations

  • Make a commitment to learning – that’s what we’re about.  Learning how to sing, how to harmonize, how to style a song, and how to perform in front of large audiences.
  • Learn your music at the same pace as the group.
  • Be ready to sing ‘off the book’ a month before the performance.
  • Come ready to participate and be prepared for change.
  • Show a passion for learning and listening.
  • Volunteer as requirements surface, especially as we prepare for concerts!
  • Attend all regular practices which take place Wednesdays, 7:00pm to 10:00pm at Killarney/Glengarry Community Hall, 2828 – 28th Street S.W. Calgary. As we get to within 6 weeks of the concerts, expect to go from 6:00pm to 10:00pm every Wednesday with additional Sunday rehearsals (scheduled months in advance)

Workshops

Attend two Fall and two Spring workshops. These sessions always take place on a Saturday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

Volunteer

Volunteer for our organization. There are many different ways to get involved and we ask that everyone contribute in some small way so the load is lighter for everyone.

Membership Fees

Membership fees are due at the first rehearsal of the season in early September. Memberships are approx. $225 for each season (September to January is our Fall Season; February to May is our Spring Season) or $420 for the entire year (September to May). Members who audition and are successful in joining our group in September MUST participate for the full year from Sep-May. There is also an expectation that members will sell tickets to our shows.
