Do you know someone who is…

Aged 11-14?

Studying at a secondary school in Gateshead?

A great singer with an unbroken voice (boys and girls)?

Brave enough to sing solo on the stage of Sage One, accompanied by Royal Northern Sinfonia, in front of an audience of over 1000 people?


If so, we’d love to hear from you!

Royal Northern Sinfonia are looking for soloists for their performances of The Snowman, and this year we would like to find a star in a Gateshead secondary school!

We have a limited number of audition slots on the evening of Monday 25th November and auditions will be offered on a first come, first served basis. For the audition, applicants will need to sing Walking in the Air from The Snowman.


Applicants must be available for audition on 25th November, rehearsal on 9th December and for all performances on 22nd, 23rd and 24th December.

If you are interested in auditioning, please contact Chrissie Slater ([email protected]) and include information on the applicant’s singing experience and which school they attend. Please note, applicants who do not attend a secondary school in Gateshead will not be accepted.


Applications close on Monday 18th November.
