Last spring Equilibrium held general auditions for projects in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons.
The casting for the The Rake’s Progress is complete.
A new round of auditions will eventually take place for upcoming Equilibrium projects.
“I am genuinely interested in hearing who is out there, to develop a pool of singers from which, as conductor and programmer, I can draw soloists for various organisations and engagements. An elite squad, if you will. I am looking for singers who have professional solo experience; Equilibrium should not be your first step on the professional stage. I also will open up my concert and opera rehearsals to these singers to observe, and possibly cover roles. Those auditioning can have professional management or not. The singers will be paid by the orchestral organizations.”
Barbara Hannigan is known worldwide as a soprano of vital expressive force directed by exceptional technique.
She divides her time between singing on the world’s major stages and conducting leading orchestras.
“I am searching for musicians with a sense of individual drive, who have great passion and curiosity for their musical path, and of course, the voice and technique to go with it.”
Equilibrium’s first project will be three semi-staged performances of The Rake’s Progress with Gothenburg Symphony in December 2018, conducted by Barbara Hannigan.
