Auditions for soloists

The Snowman Tour

Each year we audition children between the ages 7 and 17 to be part of The Snowman Tour. We offer children living close to each venue the chance to sing the evocative Walking in the Air solo (and sometimes other solos where applicable), during our Snowman performances.

This is a wonderful and unique opportunity for young musicians to sing alongside our professional orchestra and in front of hundreds of people.
