WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE AUDITION:

  • Auditions are held in Plano

  • Auditions last approximately 20 minutes

  • Parents are asked to sit in on the audition

  • Auditions consist of vocal exploration, pitch matching, rhythm exercises, harmonization, vocal memory, breathing, posture and simple sight singing.

  • Children will be asked to sing a song of their choice without accompaniment.  Preferred song choice would be traditional, such as folk, classical, or hymn for example, preferably not a pop song.  However, it will be acceptable if the child prefers to sing something as simple as “Happy Birthday” or “Twinkle, Twinkle.”

  • At the end of the audition, your child will be told the results of the audition, and either be invited to become a new member of the Chorus or be asked to work with a vocal coach and perhaps re-audition

  • If your child is invited to join and would like to accept the invitation and become a member of the Chorus, we ask that you sign a commitment form and pay the $50 Enrollment Fee (check or cash) at the time of the audition
