BSR has been organizing combined company auditions for classical singers since 2001. Listed below are just a few of the many positive quotes and letters that we have received:

"I was very happy that some work came out of the audition! Thanks for producing this great opportunity."

"This was my first time attending and I am impressed with how well this is run."

"Location was great! Thanks for having a place with parking!"

"Great space, nice to sing in."

"Considering this was an 'open' audition, I heard some very fine singers!"

"The experience was just great. I will certainly put out the word to the many conductors and directors I will be seeing over the next few weeks"

"I just signed with my manager as a result of him hearing me at the audition and receiving my materials."

"The comments [from the open audition] were sometimes helpful, sometimes not. I suppose that's just how it goes; I know what to use and what to throw away."

"Well run, efficient and 'good eats!'

"I'm going to tell my director friends to make sure to attend both auditions - we heard some great singers today [at the open audition].

"It is really nice to be able to network with some of the other companies, too!"

"Thank you so much for the wonderful experience of Saturday's audition. We found singers for all the parts and also an accompanist!"

"Great accompanists, thanks!"

"Whether it was taking in the wide range of New England-based vocal talent (we've found about a dozen very qualified prospects), networking and connecting with other artistic/music directors from the region, or enjoying the provided goodies, it all seemed to come together in a very low-key, entirely professional manner."

"The hall was excellent... and it was nice to be able to sing on stage for an audience instead of just a room with a panel."

"Just wanted to say how impressed I was with the level of organization, friendliness and helpful facilities at Saturday's audition. Thank You."

"A banquet of talent available to us, thanks!"

"The auditor information sheet is excellent - full of great information."

"I was on standby and was fitted in very quickly and easily, thanks."

"I have contacted several people and hope to use many of them in our next production. Thanks, again, for this fabulous opportunity."

"Everything was well organized and ran very smoothly. I know everyone appreciated the care and concern thay were given as they waited and ultimately sang."

"It was a real privilege to get the opportunity to sing for a variety of different directors."

"We found singers to record our musical, thanks."

"New England needs what you have created. Keep up the good work!"
