All current Vermont Youth Chorus members and new students wishing to join must perform an audition in order to determine their placement and growth. The auditions will be 10 minutes long and will be held 6:00 – 8:30pm on May 30, 31, and June 6 at the Elley-Long Music Center. New students should complete this registration to receive an audition appointment. Returning students should complete the registration prior to their audition.
In the audition, students will be asked to:
Perform an unaccompanied solo that demonstrates their best singing. Students are encouraged to pick an art song, aria, or solo piece from musical theater.
Sing simple vocalises to determine their vocal development and discuss the best vocal placement in the choir to ensure their growth.
Interpret a simple 4 measure sight reading example in order to determine the student’s comfort with musical notation.
One of the objectives of the auditions is to set goals for each student toward developing their musicianship and vocal technique.
Audition results will go out via email early in June. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
