Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA – Mennonite World Conference is seeking gifted vocalists to join the International Vocal Ensemble for the Pennsylvania 2015 Assembly.
This ensemble will lead congregational singing during the Assembly. The singing and worship services will reflect the global fellowship of Mennonite World Conference, and be rich in music and worship diversity. The purpose of this group is to lead, teach, and inspire – not to give a performance.
The ensemble will consist of ten persons representing all continents. Those applying to sing in the ensemble should have a strong commitment to Christian/Anabaptist values, excellent team skills, previous performance experience, reference from a pastor. Applicants should be familiar with (or be willing to learn) a wide variety of international types of music and different worship styles, able to communicate in English, sing a vocal part and play an instrument.
Prior to Assembly, ensemble members will practice and become familiar with the music in their home countries, beginning in May 2015. They will need to arrive in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania by 16 July to have several days of practice before the Assembly starts on 21 July.
Those interested in applying to be on the Assembly International Vocal Ensemble, should provide a brief resume and videos or MP3s (or links) of their performances to Don McNiven (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and John Williamson (JohnWilliamson@mwc-cmm.org). Applications should be sent prior to 15 January 2015. For more information please contact JohnWilliamson@mwc-cmm.org
