Teachers & conductors are invited to recommend choristers to audition for the 2019 Alberta Youth Choir!
AYC is the province’s honour choir for singers ages 16-22, and provides a unique opportunity for excellent young choristers from across Alberta to join forces in the pursuit of choral music excellence. The guest conductor for AYC 2019 is Dr. Sandra Snow, Professor of Choral Conducting and Music Education at Michigan State University.

Acceptance into AYC is by a two-stage audition process:


Conductors/teachers are invited to recommend up to 8 choristers per choir for an AYC audition. To recommend choristers, conductors/teachers give a copy of the Invitation to Audition Letter and Intention to Audition Form to each recommended chorister. Choristers recommended for an audition are asked to complete the form and return it to their conductor/teacher. The conductor/teacher will then submit the Recommendation Form, attaching the Intention to Audition Form for each recommended chorister.

The deadline to recommend choristers is Tuesday April 30.


Once the Recommendation Form has been received, an Audition Packet will be sent by email to each recommended chorister. The Audition Packet contains detailed audition instructions; conductors/teachers may help their choristers in preparing for their audition. The audition is made up of 4 parts: two basic 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. Choristers will submit all audition materials online - nothing is mailed in.

The deadline for recommended choristers to upload their audition materials is Friday May 24.
