Youth Opera Chorus holds auditions for children Saturday at UH-Manoa
Hawaii Youth Opera Chorus is holding open auditions for its children's opera program, OPERAtunities, from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday at the University of Hawaii-Manoa Music Department, Room 36.
Auditions are open to boys and girls in grades 4 to 12 interested in song, dance and theater craft.
Participants will work on the production of "Laieikawai," Neil McKay's Hawaiian legend, learning vocal techniques, acting, costuming, stage makeup and prop construction.
Students who wish to audition should arrive 30 minutes early to register. Call general manager Malia Ka'ai-Barrett at 521-2982.
The chorus was formed to provide young singers for the Hawaii Opera Theatre but has expanded to serve more than 200 students in grades kindergarten through 12.
