“As a new member of the Houston Masterworks Choral, this has been a great experience for me. I love these singers, and most of the singers are trained, great sight readers, and truly beautiful musicians.
The audition process is a little frightening, but once I determined the value of the audition, it made it tolerable! It’s simply a discovery as to what my skills are in pitch management, sight reading, musicianship and vocal timbre and range possibilities.
After spending most of my youth and my college years singing and performing roles in operas, playing piano for churches and musical theatre, I chose a different career using my fine art skills to make a living. Although I have maintained a connection with music all these many years, something was missing for me. LIVE PERFORMANCE. HMC has given me a space to perform live and to sharpen my singing, sight reading skills and allows me to get back into the potential of making beautiful music.
Maestro Paulo Gomes is a wonderful leader, conductor, and musician. He is encouraging, but also a realist about what it takes to become a top notch singing chorale. I appreciate his attention to detail, which many choral directors would simply gloss over. Not so with Maestro Gomes, he listens and reacts to the group with demands that make real music possible.
So, if you have something missing in your core about wanting or needing to sing, perform and make great music, I believe you should give yourself a little stretch and set up your audition today!
Making music inspires me, keeps me striving to become a better musician, singer and performer, and truly makes me smile from the inside out!”
