Auditions for 2011-2012 Have Begun
Mostly Motets is now auditioning for the 2011-2012 season.  We are looking for experienced singers who are passionate about sacred music from the Renaissance and Middle Ages.  Auditions are being held for all parts.
Mostly Motets is a 10-14 voice SATB ensemble that sings a cappella works by popular High Renaissance composers (Tallis, Byrd, Victoria, Palestrina, etc.) as well as less-often performed earlier music (Dufay, Desprez, Fry, Ockeghem, chant, Middle English songs, etc.).
The ensemble usually rehearses twice a month on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 4:30, alternating between San Francisco and Berkeley.  For more details or to arrange an audition, please see the membership page of our web site and email  as soon as possible.  Those who may be interested in singing with the group are also encouraged to attend the above performance on June 12th.

WAVE sings selections from its June 10 program at Mass and as part of Mission San Antonio de Padua’s Fiesta.
