Opera Santa Barbara is Looking for Golden-Voiced Youngsters

Opera Santa Barbara is looking for golden-voiced youngsters to be part of the children’s chorus in the company’s fall production of La Boheme. Youth in 3rd-12th grades are eligible to audition; those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, however. You’ll be required to sing 16 measures from a song of your choice, and you must bring sheet music for piano accompaniment. Auditions take place Saturday, September 8, noon-5 p.m., at First Congregational Church (2101 State St.). To register for a spot, email by September 1. See
