Acceptance into AYC is by a two stage audition process:
1. Choristers can apply for an AYC audition by submitting this form no later than 30 April 2018. Once the application for audition has been received, an Audition Packet will be sent to the email provided below. The Audition Packet contains detailed audition instructions.
The audition is made up of 4 parts: two simple vocal exercises, a prepared piece (which can be the chorister’s part in one of the pieces your choir is currently singing), a new piece (it is short, and we provide PDF scores), and a brief questionnaire.
2. Choristers submit their audition materials online. All materials are uploaded – nothing is mailed in. The deadline to upload audition materials is 30 May 2018.
The AYC Roster will be announced in June.
The guest conductor for AYC 2018 is Cristian Grases, Associate Professor of Choral Music at USC Thornton..
The fee is $295, payable after official acceptance into the choir. Bursaries are available.
