Saskatoon Children’s Choir Auditions
Come sing with us!
If you are interested in joining our choir for the 2017-18 season, our audition dates this spring will be on:
Tuesday, May 23, Friday, May 26, Tuesday, May 30, Thursday, June 1 and Saturday, June 3.
The auditions are open to all children who love to sing or would like to learn more about singing through the SCC experience. While some previous vocal or music training is advantageous, it is not a requirement. Many choristers who are new to music training are able to demonstrate a natural aptitude for singing at the audition. Applicants must be between seven and sixteen years of age. There is no fee for auditions. Selected choristers will be placed in one of three choirs:
Preparatory Choir: for children aged 7 to 9
Apprentice Choir: for children aged 8 to 13
Concert Choir: for children aged 11 to 16
The audition is approximately ten minutes and is designed to be a friendly, positive experience for all participants. At the audition you will meet with our artistic director, Phoebe Voigts. She will ask you to echo melodies, clap rhythms, and perform several ear-training exercises. You do not need to prepare anything ahead of time. Singers auditioning for the Preparatory choir will be asked to sing simple melodies and explore with the director beginning level rhythm patterns. You will be notified of your audition results by mail after all applications have been processed.
