I Trovatori Opera

Classical Vocal Ensemble

'Celeste Aida'
(Verdi without Words: Grand Opera for Orchestra Disc 1)
0:00/3:56
Hello, and thank you for coming to our website.  We are spearheading a new project and are looking for singers who are ready and primed to sing principal roles in Opera, Musical Theater, Oratorios and Concerts.

My name is Sonia Alonso and I am the Artistic Director for I Trovatori 2013.  I will be assisted by Bret Peppo as Music Director and we are forming our staff as we progress.  Our initial home of operation will be in Central Contra Costa County.

We are looking for two kinds of singers.  Those who are prepared to sing principal roles and those who want to participate as choristers.  Everyone will audition at the beginning of the semester. 

Singers who want to perform roles must have at least 5 roles prepared and with minimal rehearsals be ready to perform.  This is not a 'young artist program.'  We are looking for singers whose voices are mature and who have the vocal stamina to sing for 3-4 hours at a stretch.  All singers must have a solid vocal technique and no vocal problems, like wobbles, heavy vibrato, pitch issues.  You must have command of Italian, English, French, and German for singing purposes.

We envision producing concert Operas, Musicals and General music programs.  We want all interested parties to contact us either by registering on this website or by sending us email: [email protected]  Please include your contact information, a recent headshot, a resume/biography and for those who want to be considered for principal roles please include a list of your repertoire that is ready to go.

This website is a work in progress and I will be building it a bit at a time.  Our main venue for communication will be the email on gmail.com.

I Trovatori 2013 Announce Open Audition Call for Soloists
We will be holding auditions for soloists September 27-29, 2013, from 1-6pm and on October 4-6, 2013 from 1-6pm at Diablo Valley College, in Pleasant Hill, CA 94523. Interested singers should submit a music resume/bio in text or Word Doc format and a recent headshot via email or online at our website: http://itrovatori2013.webs.com. Our Email: [email protected]
We are particularly looking for Tenors, Basses, Baritones, and Mezzos, however all voice fachs may apply and will be contacted for an audition appointment. We will be forming a cadre of an ensemble who will perform principal roles in opera and musical theater. There will be two teams: A & B. The team assignment is dependent on your availability for performances and in case of an indisposition of a singer on the A-Team. No bearing on vocal talent.
We also have staff positions which need filling: Webmaster, Public Affairs/Publicity, Rehearsal Pianist and Accompanist, Guest Conductor, and a Grant Writer. (NOTE: Use Highlighted text for 30 Sec PSA)
Our first concert is slated for New Year's Eve from 6:30 til 9:30pm. This will give all participants and audience plenty of celebrating time afterwords. “A Night at the Opera” will be a great way to bring in the new year.
