JIM MCDONOUGH’S HOLIDAY GRANDE 2008 AUDITION NOTICE:
Exciting plans are in progress for Jim McDonough’s “Holiday Grande 2008” to be performed on three weekends, from November 29 through December 14. For the past five years, we have been thrilling audiences with beautiful Christmas music, making this event a holiday tradition for thousands of families. This year is no exception, as we take this stage production to some of the most beautiful venues in Iowa, on our five city tour.
Allen Koepke, musical director, will be conducting our 15 piece orchestra, featuring “Iowa’s Own Pianist” and recording artist, Jim McDonough. The cast of musicians would not be complete without very talented singers and dancers, choreographed by Michelle Philgreen.
Auditions for young adult singers and dancers will take place at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church,
8300 C. Avenue NE (use the north entrance of the church) in Cedar Rapids on the following dates:
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 4:00-8:00 PM
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 6:30-9:30 PM
Please come to auditions in dance attire, and have a song ready to perform. Auditions will be scheduled by appointment, by calling 319-360-4892 (Cedar Rapids).
We are planning to employ eight or ten singer/dancers, with a high energy level, who will perform well in an ensemble. Costumes and staging will be very elegant. In the past, many of our performances have been sold out, as we have a large number of groups who travel from surrounding cities and states by motor coach. We are very pleased to present these concerts to benefit Camp Courageous of Iowa.
To schedule an appointment for an audition, or if you have any questions regarding the auditions and concert tour, please call 319-360-4892.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the auditions!
