Auditions and Opportunities

Project TOSCA

Opera Queensland is searching for talented singers across the State to join their 2020 Regional Tour of Puccini’s Tosca.
Project Tosca is a large, ambitious project in which Opera Queensland will work with seven communities to find and train close to 400 local performers to join the Company's Community Chorus.
This is your opportunity to audition for a coveted position and perform and train alongside Opera Queensland artists.
Auditions will take place throughout March, April and May 2020. Local Chorus Masters will manage rehearsals prior to August performances. To register for an audition, head to the Opera Queensland website here.

IMPACT Ensemble 2020

Too often, young people are underestimated as a vital part of our changing world. Now in its tenth year, the IMPACT Ensemble continues to challenge assumptions and places youth voice in the spotlight. For the first time, thanks to Western Downs Regional Council, the IMPACT Ensemble program is coming to Dalby!

The Empire Youth Arts Dalby IMPACT Ensemble is a performance-making program which offer young people a variety of professional performance experiences. The aim of the ensemble is to create a work that speaks effectively with the voice of young people, by young people and for young people. Entry is based on audition, and the Dalby Ensemble (Ages 12-18) will work across the year to rehearse a performance piece for audiences in Dalby in November. For all details, dates and forms download your audition pack here.

Senior IMPACT Ensemble (Toowoomba) audition pack will be available soon!
