Auditions are now open for “Sonaré” a year-long Young Artist Program sponsored by The Minuetto Music Festival and produced by The Continuo Arts Foundation. Designed to afford professional and aspiring young artists opportunities in performance, experience and leadership, Sonaré members serve as Artists-in-Residence throughout the season for The Continuo Arts Civic Chorale, and are featured in concerts, cabarets and The Minuetto Music Festival.  From vocal artists seeking a professional performance track to working musicians and teachers wanting an outlet for performance and networking, Sonaré provides an outstanding platform for artistic growth, enrichment and performance. Audition requirements include two contrasting selections, sight-reading and interview.

 

The Minuetto Music Festival is a week-long program in June that has seen great success in previous years with young artist winners both local and across the country.  During the week, young artists attend master classes, the business of music classes, are scheduled in coachings, rehearsals and perform in a Young Artist Showcase as well as the Festival Finale Concert with Orchestra.  All Sonaré members also receive full scholarships to the Minuetto Festival program June 25-July 1st.

Celebrating ten years of Music, Inspiration and Opportunity, The Continuo Arts Foundation has made a notable impact on both the national and international music scene. Locally, Continuo offers New Jersey’s most comprehensive intergenerational choral program with seven choirs for singers of all ages; a music conservatory offering private lessons, produces concerts, and premieres major choral and orchestral works in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Music Center at Strathmore. Making history, Continuo Arts was the first US organization to present a concert inside the Sistine Chapel and has served as musical ambassadors around the world at prestigious international music festivals in Rome, Vatican City, Ireland, Czech Republic, and other world stages of note. Back at home, The Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus was featured on the Paper Mill Playhouse main stage for forty-two shows premiering Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, 9-11 Memorial Observance and many other local community events.
