Invitation to African-American Singers

From today's SFCV Music News column:

The San Francisco Opera Chorus is holding auditions for African-American tenors, baritones, and basses to perform in the world premiere production of Philip Glass' Appomattox. The auditions - by invitation only, requests to be made by calling (415) 565-3205 or e-mailing ahughes@sfopera.com - will be held on Friday, July 27, beginning at 5 p.m., at the Opera House.

Singers chosen at the auditions will represent one of the Civil War regiments of African-American Union soldiers (reminiscent of the regiment depicted in the film Glory), as well as other roles in the production.
