Choral Placement

Choral Placement

Students wishing to participate in Treble Choir or Vocal Ensemble must participate in Choral Placement Auditions. These auditions will take place on May 19th from 2:30pm to 4:30pm in the 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 Tuesday May 18th.

Students wishing to participate in Mixed Chorus - Beginning (Fall), there is no audition necessary. Students wishing to participate in Mixed Chorus - Intermediate (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.
