Roseburg— Umpqua Community College Fine and Performing Arts proudly announces the upcoming auditions for the 2008-2009 Umpqua Singers. The Umpqua Singers from Umpqua Community College are one of the premiere vocal jazz ensembles in the Pacific Northwest.
Audition will be held Monday, May 12, in Whipple Fine Arts Center Room 12 from 1-3 pm. Students must come prepared with a solo selection (in any musical style).
This 12-member group performs a broad range of musical styles ranging from traditional swing to contemporary R & B. With ten CDs to their credit, the group performs forty-five to fifty engagements per year. The Umpqua Singers traveled to Spain in December 2007 on a 10-day tour, Alaska in 2006, and were the featured performers at the Capitol Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington D.C. in 2002.
