Audition dates/times
Special arrangements for fall 2017 (per Director, Sam Schieber):

"Samantics is gearing up for what I think will be a wonderful fall concert: the music of Lerner & Loewe. These guys are particular favorites of mine, and I've been digging up some lesser- and even totally unknown music of theirs for the occasion. In addition, we'll be looking at songs by Loewe without Lerner AND Lerner without Loewe."

"It will be a very short commitment: 7 rehearsals (8 for men) and 3 performances.  REHEARSALS, all Monday nights, 7:00-10:00 p.m. - 9/11, 9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/9, 10,16, 10/23 [men will have one extra outside rehearsal, to be determined].  PERFORMANCES:  Friday, 10/27 (Vacaville); Saturday, 10/28 (Berkeley); Sunday, 10/29 (Sacramento).

"Rehearsals alternate between Sacramento and Vacaville, the preponderance this time being in Sacramento; carpools are available to go to Vacaville.  Concert attire is black evening gown for women, black tuxedo for men ... OR any equivalent that will give that illusion.  Music will not be memorized and you will be holding a folder, which will be provided."

Auditions are by appointment with Director.
