Sing at VOS in 2019

We are very excited to announce that our new Music Director, Christopher Raymond, is seeking singers to join the VOS Vocal Ensemble.

The VOS Vocal Ensemble will be a multi-generational group that will perform traditional and modern Jewish music (as well as music of other genres) at VOS Shabbat and Holiday Services. Joining the VOS Vocal Ensemble will give you the opportunity to develop a deeper connection with Judaism through music.

´╗┐Christopher has worked on Broadway, conducted at the Ahmanson Theatre and has many years of professional experience as a Music Director and Composer. VOS is seeking strong singers who are diligent workers and team players.


For your “audition,” we ask that you sing 8 bars of a favorite song. The song can be a standard Jewish song or it can be non-religious (Musical Theatre, Pop, Jazz, etc.) if you would prefer.

Christopher will be auditioning singers in the Sanctuary at VOS on the following days:

Sunday, January 20th, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Wednesday, January 23rd, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

No appointment time is necessary for auditions.

Below is a link to a possible song you could sing a section of for your audition:
