We are Carpe Sono, a semi professional contemporary a cappella group here in Austin, TX. We have been together for four years and are currently looking for new members to round out our group!

A few facts about our group:

– We sing contemporary Rock/Pop/Soul Songs (U2, Rhianna, Ed Sheeran, Cold Play, Ellie Goulding, Pink Floyd, Justin Timberlake, Sara Bareilles, Alicia Keys & More!)
– Our age range is from 23-33
– We’re high energy, eclectic, focused, talented, driven, and family friendly
– We practice 4-6 times a month
– We have 2-3 gigs a month (10-15 a month during the Christmas Season)
– Although our love of a cappella music is our primary and most important motivation, we are semi professional – there is modest compensation to members for paid gigs.
– We are a community of musicians that have become great friends through this process

Here is what we are looking for:

 

– tenor and tenor/baritone ages 21+
– a deep passion for music and a cappella in particular
– consistent availability for gigs and 2 hour practices once a week
– a commitment to excellence
– someone who learns and memorizes music quickly
– someone who’s looking to work hard to sound amazing and meet and hang out with new friends and fellow musicians

Interested? Well, RVSP for auditions

You’ll:

– learn more about the vision of the group
– sing a solo (about 2 minutes) showing off your solo voice
– learn part of an a cappella arrangement and sing it within a small ensemble
– do a range test
– fill out a short questionnaire

You will be evaluated on:
– your solo
– stage presence
– your ability to blend with others during the ensemble
– your tone
– the ‘intangibles’ (other attributes you can bring to the group outside of your voice e.g. arranging experience)

Please fill out the following and contact us here:

  1. Name: JP De Ovando

    Age: 23

    Singing Experience: High school show choir, frequent soloist in Amphion Youth Choir, 5+ years in self taught singing since then.

    Why Would You Want to be apart of this group?
    Singing is one of my biggest passions. I greatly miss the days of show choir and performing in front of people. I believe I would be a great addition to the group and would love to be able to say I sing semi-professionally instead of just at karaoke bars.

    Fun facts about you: In addition to singing, I am a self taught composer, pianist, and drummer. My biggest vocal influences are Michael Jackson and Phil Collins. I study music production at The Art Institute of Austin. I have a corgi who thinks he’s a lot tougher than he really is.

    • Hey JP!

      I e-mailed you a while back but I don’t know if you received my e-mail. I like some of the qualifications that you have and wanted to see if you would be interested in joining us for a rehearsal in a few weeks? It would be a chance to sing a few songs with us and determine if it may be a good fit. Let me know what you think and I’ll send you some music if you’re interested. Thanks!
