After hearing many wonderful singers from all over the world, the announcement of the group's chosen soprano candidate will be very shortly forthcoming…watch this space!

We are seeking an amazing individual to fill our upcoming soprano vacancy.

Auditions will take place in Sydney in March and April 2017, dates to be confirmed. Position start date will be in June/July of 2017.

Our new soprano will need to be available for approximately 80-120 performances per year, both nationally and internationally, as well as ad-hoc rehearsals once the inital training period concludes. The Idea of North is Sydney-based, however interstate and international applications will be considered.

The group performs a wide range of repertoire, including (but not limited to) jazz, pop, folk and comedy. We are looking for a soprano who has direct experience of and displays comfort within most or all of these genres, including the ability to transition between vocal styles, vocal tone and stage character to match our eclectic performances.

To apply, please email us at with the following attachments (please send all in the one email):

• CV, detailing varied musical style experience
• Photo
• Live video/sound clips/links, one in the jazz style and one in the pop style (ideally within an a cappella setting, or at least where your singing is clearly audible)
• A short, informal introductory paragraph or video about who you are and what you would bring to The Idea of North. We’d love to get to know you a little!

Remuneration will be in line with the Live Performance Award, however final negotiations will be discussed with the successful applicant. Applicants successful in gaining an audition will be required to make their own way to Sydney for their audition, unless the audition is able to coincide with our touring schedule outside of Sydney or Australia.

Look forward to hearing from you!
