MISC: Central Massachusetts madrigal group A Goodlie Companye is one bass short of a home run. We're looking for a low bass to join our fun, small, mostly a cappella chorus that sings year-round, and performs medieval and renaissance music in period garb. Previous musical experience is appreciated but not required; we have members with various backgrounds. For more information, please visit


MISC: Sing! And make a little jing! Tuckermans at 9, southeastern New Hampshire's semi-pro contemporary a cappella group since 2004, is auditioning for a first tenor. Many solo opportunities, but also looking for good blend.  Position is long-term/permanent, but we can certainly work around your other groups/choruses or film/stage commitments. Year round performances, 8-12 per year, and weekly rehearsals.  We're fun but serious about making killer a cappella AND entertaining our audiences. We do this mostly for the love of a cappella, but we do pay when possible after expenses. See our demo video at, then email 10
