The Red Rose Children’s Choir is interested in auditioning any child who loves to sing!
Our friendly group audition process involves the director warming up a small group of auditioning singers in a circle, and teaching them a short piece. The Artistic Director will ask each singer to participate in some pitch matching and range identifying activities. There will be some movement to encourage relaxed singing, and time for each singer to share information about their interest in singing. They will also be able to ask any questions they may have about choir.
Singers will also sing a round, in groups of two or more, to determine independent singing. No prepared audition piece is required. If your singer is in 8th grade or older, they will be asked to sight-sing a piece, and sing a prepared piece of their choice, preferably a classical or folk song. Students are placed in the choir level that matches their ability and age group.
The Executive Director will be at the auditions to greet you and answer questions you may have concerning rehearsals, performances, attire, tuition etc. We do ask that parents remain in the lobby while their child is auditioning.
It is the intention of the directors to make auditions a positive experience and to help each child feel at ease. Our goal is to make this musical experience possible for any child who is interested and ready to sing. Letters are sent to the parents the week after the auditions.
