TENOR TESTIMONIAL: Anthony Flaum
Anthony Flaum - Tenor
"I found myself in the position of being "between" agents, right in the run up to the all-important audition season of September - November. As I'm sure many people know, a lot of houses audition principal soloists for future seasons in this period and also Summer seasons often cast anything from large & small principal roles to covers to chorus from these open auditions. So all is to play for! However, I didn't have someone searching down these opportunities for me. So, I took control of my career (as everyone should do, whether with, or without and agent).
Audition Oracle has played a great part in getting me seen by some leading companies in the UK and I've also been able to apply for a variety of other one-off jobs, which all help to pay the bills! Melanie has her finger firmly on the operatic pulse! She was able to alert me instantly to a number of castings available on the work & auditions board that might suit me. Auditions were forthcoming and I landed a principal role with a leading UK Summer opera festival for 2017 as well as a nice gap-filler earlier on in the year.
The service of course is as good as you are i.e. you have to be proactive and apply for things and not just wait for the phone to ring.....but I've found it a thoroughly useful tool in the past few months. I would highly recommend it both for young singers to gain valuable stage time and also for more experienced singers and soloists who want to make that leap into better, bigger work. It's a really responsive, easy to use service. Audition Oracle and their team deserve every recognition in the business for serving the next generation of singers to get out there working."
