We’re looking to increase our membership with good people who share our passion for excellent music, creativity, and community connection. Learn about membership and begin the process online today!
Ensoma Creative is a close-knit ensemble with permanent/indefinite membership (much like a band member) rather than operating on a per-season membership basis. Vocalists remain members until it is necessary for an individual to transition out as a result of the circumstances or needs of the individual and/or the ensemble. This reflects our vision for the ensemble, in which we are “Ensoma” (Greek, meaning “one body”) that is defined by the members within it.
We dislike the idea of charging our members for the time they devote to the ensemble. However, after examining other successful ensembles, we’ve found that membership fees foster a higher level of commitment from members. For this reason, we ask our members to submit $50 as a commitment to each concert cycle they agree to perform in with the understanding that, upon completion of the concert, the full amount will be reimbursed to each member that is consistent with our professional standards of attendance and communication.
Ensoma Creative provides a variety of paid recording session opportunities and events for its members including Composer Demo Sessions and occasional contracted performances.
Additionally, Ensoma Creative favors arrangements and compositions from its own members and will perform them whenever possible.
All voice parts are welcome to audition.
We are not accepting undergraduate college students at this time. Graduate and doctoral students will be considered.
Moderate to advanced sight-reading ability is required.
