The auditions are for NEW singers, adults of all ages, who are interested in adding their name to the Mobile Opera Chorus roster. Prepare an aria, song or other musical selection that will allow us to form an idea of your level of singing. You don’t have to be an “opera singer” to become one. Please bring a copy of your audition piece for the provided accompanist (no pre-recorded music, please). 

You must call to reserve your place prior to the audition date.  For more information or to schedule an audition, contact Stacey Driskell with Mobile Opera via email

The Big Picture Collective Art Project

We would love your drawings to be part of our Collective Art Project : The Big Picture. Participants from all over the world are uploading their drawings and sketches and we are making a large mosaic-panoramic picture from all the drawings. This picture is fully searchable and zoomable, like a Google map. Why should you participate? • We have many plans for the future of the Big Picture art project. Because the project is digital, we will be looking at exhibiting it in art galleries or museums with a mix of printed media and interactive features • We are collaborating with the Artist Network and they will be the first to reveal the Big Picture online once completed. • We are working with partners like Copic markers and Strathmore paper so we will be sending prizes to the most interesting contributions. • We will offer online explorations of the picture based on themes like site seeing, art making, everyday life, inspiration, family, travelling and immigration… We are also thinking about publishing a few books based on those themes. • This is a unique opportunity to share the life stories that are important to you with a wide audience, you can also participate anonymously if you want to. Connect with artists from all other the world through a work of art. Be part of something big! Stay tuned for an exclusive reveal of the completed Big Picture on the Artist’s Network. Deadline: The project will stop once the picture has been filled with drawings, that should take at least one year.
