  How to join us:	
If you are new to SingThrough Central, contact us by sending an email to singthrough@verizon.net with your desired role(s) in the Subject Line. Please attach your materials as well. Tell us what your weekend conflicts are for the season in question.  A get-acquainted audition may be requested if you’re new to us or if you’ve changed fach or repertoire since the last time we crossed paths.

A completed Contact Form (click through here and print) should be brought to the audition.
Fees: 
 Whether you wish to review a role you have sung before or prepare a new one, there is an option for you. 	 
	  	 
  	Here are the basic guidelines for participation: 	   	 	 
   STC requires advance payment to reserve your role UPON receipt of the Official Offer for a role in a reading. If not received within 10 days (with no explanation of delay or request for other terms ), I will assume you are no longer interested and move on to the next candidate in my list.   
    The BASIC package reading fee is $250 and includes 3 hours of coaching and the reading. Coaching time beyond the package is $60 per hour. If your musicianship level is high, then 3 hours may suffice for an important protagonist or title role. However, if not, or the role is really demanding (recitatives or bel canto style) it is suggested that you consider budgeting for more than the time included. 
    Your coachings should be scheduled in a timely way so that you can learn well and steadily instead of at the last minute. 
    Alternately, when doing a short role or reviewing a role done before, one individual coaching of 90 minutes plus the reading is $165.  This option is subject to review by the Director of SingThrough Central in consultation with the singer.
    Covers are also sought for these readings. Covers must be available on the reading date and are invited to attend the reading without cost. Covers are eligible to have coachings for their role at the special STC rate ($60/hour). If a cover does ultimately go on, the reading fee may be paid at that time. 
    PLEASE NOTE: Starting to learn a role from scratch when accepted into the project is not necessarily discouraged. BUT, PLEASE don’t assume you can learn your part at the last minute or if you have many musical or other obligations. If your time framework is short, then more coachings will be necessary. 
    In general, there is a 3-6 week time period from when you are accepted into the project to the reading date. This is why the more you know of the role beforehand, the better. The sometimes short lead time is a natural result of the complexity of schedules we often find here in New York. mailto:singthrough@verizon.netContact%20Form.htmlshapeimage_4_link_0shapeimage_4_link_1
