CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- The Taconic Opera is calling for choral singers in anticipation of premiering a new oratorio.
The work, composed by Dan Montez, the company's general and artistic director, is called "JOB" and is based on the life of Old Testament prophet, Job, according to information provided by the opera.
The oratorio, Montez' fifth such composition, will be sung in English and will feature the Taconic Opera chorus, professional lead singers and a full orchestra.
Singers interested in performing the oratorio must be able to read music and must purchase their own score for $20. If needed, auditions will be held prior to regular rehearsals, which begin at 3 p.m. Nov. 7, and will continue through the winter with time off for the December holidays.
The oratorio will be performed at least twice, at 7:30 p.m. on March 19, at the Ossining Methodist Church and at 3 p.m. March 20 at the White Plains Presbyterian Church.
Rehearsals will be held at the Cortland School of Performing Arts, 24 Old Albany Post Road, Cortlandt (Croton on a GPS).
