We work hard to ensure that each child who loves to sing feels welcomed and accepted in our choir program. Auditions are to help our directors place your student in the choir that fits your child's interests, experience and age. Most often students are nervous about auditioning at first but once they have finished they say that "it wasn't as bad as I thought, it was kind of fun!"
Auditions take about 15 minutes and provide an important opportunity for the director to get to know the student. Auditions begin with reading a poem (provided and chosen at audition), singing warm-ups and a familiar song. Sometimes students come with a song chosen and memorized, other times they sing a simple song like "Happy Birthday". For students eighth grade and older, theory and sight reading skills will be assessed.
Scheduling your placement audition is as easy as completing the form and hitting the submit button or by calling us at 815.356.SING (7464). We will contact you within the next two business days to schedule your audition.
