OLDE TOWNE CAROLERS – 2017 online auditions

Olde Towne Carolers, the region’s foremost caroling company, is seeking talented singers for the 2017 holiday season.  The caroling season runs from mid-November through the end of December. 

We cover the whole northeast with two groups of core singers: Mid-Atlantic Region and New England Region.

Mid-Atlantic Region gigs are primarily in eastern PA (Philly, Main Line, Lehigh Valley), as well as NJ, DE, NY, DC, and other surrounding states.  Greater Boston area singers cover the New England Region.

We have been in operation since 2005, and have performed for venues as far away as Canada.  We’ve made appearances on national, regional, and local television, as well as radio.  Most gigs are at shopping malls, retirement homes, private parties, country clubs, corporate parties, etc. 

Mid Atlantic Region: (PA, NJ, NY, DE, DC) Hearing all voice parts for standard caroling gigs, but especially looking for male voices. (Tenors and Basses.)
Will consider Sopranos and Altos with good open availability.

Boston Area: Hearing all voice parts for standard caroling gigs, but especially looking for Altos, Tenors, and Basses. 
Will consider Sopranos with good open availability.
