Leave your ego at the door: an interview with iNtrmzzo

INtrmzzo

Touring, all-male a cappella group seeks new singer. High-ish voice. Must have good personality and sense of humor. ABSOLUTELY NO BIG EGOS.

Bald singers preferred.

Since its formation in 1984 (as Intermezzo), Dutch group iNtrmzzo has had many iterations and many different members. The original members were students and sang primarily classical repertoire.
