Auditions are held privately between the singer and conductor and take about ten minutes. Encourage your singer to be themselves and relax! The audition format will consist of a few basic elements led by the conductor: running through scales to find the singer’s comfortable high and low notes, checking their ability to match pitches and follow melodic patterns, and assessing their sight reading ability. The singer will then sing a familiar song without accompaniment to better assess overall voice quality.

NOTE: Children must be 9 years old on or before December 1st, 2018; boys must have unchanged voices.
