Call for auditions: violoncello

cello-pic-small
Cult of Orpheus is seeking a cellist to record, perform, and tour in the coming months.

You’ll work with composer / producer Christopher Corbell, who is adding cello parts to the Sonnets project, which will become a full-length album this year. Recording is slated for early summer, and a brief supporting tour will happen in the fall.

In addition, you will be the go-to cellist for other Cult of Orpheus recording and performance projects including art-song concerts and recordings, and original opera workshops and productions.

You must be into lyrical music, art-song, and poetry! That’s what this troupe is about.

In addition to proficiency and performance experience, the following are highly valued though not strictly required:

  • ability with other instrument(s) and/or singing
  • experience in non-classical performance (indie-acoustic, rock, experimental, improv, or sim.)
  • recording session experience

Auditions will be scheduled through the end of February, 2016. To schedule yours, or to find out more, please send a note of introduction to music (at) cultoforpheus.org.


Cult of Orpheus is the opera and art-song vehicle of Portland composer and singer/songwriter Christopher Corbell.
