There are no auditions at this time. Check back for auditions in January for the summer MN Renaissance Festival season.
The Elizabethan Syngers is an a cappella choral arts organization of volunteer singers dedicated to preserving, promoting and performing music of and inspired by the Renaissance era. We are seeking confident performers who sing with imagination and have an affinity for theatrical presentation. Strong basic musicianship and mature vocal skills are required. Candidates must be capable and comfortable in a fast-paced learning environment and must be willing to commit the necessary personal time to be prepared for rehearsals and performances.
The active performance season runs from mid-May through mid-December and is divided into two sub-seasons, culminating with the MN Renaissance Festival in mid-August through September; and a festive Christmas concert in December. On-demand performances may be scheduled in the off-season as opportunities arise. Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings at 7:00-9:30 p.m. during the regular performance season.
There are no membership fees or dues associated with the Elizabethan Syngers, however, all singers are required to procure an approved Renaissance costume. It may be rented from the organization's extensive collection at a flat fee of $75 or purchased independently. The Elizabethan Syngers' costume coordinator, in accordance with Minnesota Renaissance Festival standards, must approve all costumes.
