Choral Placement

Please check back in February for the Choral Placement Audition dates.

They are planned to be late April.

Choral Placement

Students wishing to participate in Proficient or Advanced level choirs must take part in Choral Placement Auditions. These auditions will take place on TBA from 2:30pm to 4:30pm in the Athens Drive Chorus Room. Students do not need to prepare anything in advance. We will be conducting the auditions like a rehearsal and students should be prepared to work hard and to stay for the entire audition process. Sheet music will be supplied at the auditions. If you are auditioning, you MUST fill out the audition info Google Form by CLICKING HERE. The Google Form should be completed by TBA.

For students wishing to participate in Beginning Level (Fall), there is no audition necessary. Students wishing to participate in Intermediate Level (Spring), you must have completed Beginning Chorus or have permission from the instructor.

***Note - There are expenses associated with chorus including a $30 Fair Share Assessment Fee each semester, and a one time fee for Formal Choral Attire as well as any fees for field trips. Students are able to participate in fundraising to cover these fees. For more information about Fair Share CLICK HERE and for more information about Formal Choral Attire CLICK HERE.
