Through music education, skill development and social interaction, the Choir offers its adult and youth members opportunities for personal growth and self expression.
How: Audition Process, What to Expect/Prepare
1) Director will take singer through a series of vocal exercises to determine vocal range, tone, and pitch.
2) Director will play a series of 4-5 notes on the piano and ask the singer to sing back what they heard, from memory. This helps it determining pitch and rhythmic retention (tonal memory).
3) Please prepare a solo song that shows your voice to its best advantage.
This will be sung a cappella (without accompaniment).
If you prefer, you may instead sing the “Star Spangled Banner.”
4) Do not stress! This audition is simply for the director to hear your voice.
We want the process and musical experience to be enjoyable.
