Auditions

Auditions for both the Apprentice and Intermediate Choirs are designed to put your child at ease to express himself or herself musically. Auditions are brief, informal, and fun. The best way to help your child prepare to talk with them about what will happen during their audition and decide together what song* they might like to sing

*Children auditioning for the Apprentice Choir are not required to sing a prepared piece.
