Audition Information

 

New to choir? If you are interested in joining Children's, Chamber, Belles Or Vox, you will first need to schedule an audition. Each audition is only 10 minutes, but the main objectives are for our artistic staff to listen to each singer to determine which choir would be best suited to the individual. Our conductors will do some range testing (to see how high and how low you can comfortably sing — it’s not a competition!), some agility testing (to see how quickly you can sing scales and arpeggios), and some aural skills tests (matching pitch, identifying the top/bottom note of a chord). Auditions also a great opportunity to meet our conductors and ask any questions you (parents and singers) might have. Remember – no one has ever died from an audition. ☺ There is NO NEED to stress about it! We’re here to meet you and have a bit of fun.

Returning chorister from Vox, Chamber Choir or Children’s Choir (and you don’t take private voice lessons with Heather), your conductor wants to hear you. So please book an audition. No Belle re-auditions this year you can just re-register here so we know you will be coming back. 

What to prepare for the audition:

A song of your choice, preferably an art song in English. If you don’t know an art song, you may sing something like ‘O Canada,’ ‘Amazing Grace,’ a church hymn or your favourite Broadway song.

The results:

Results of the auditions are communicated at the end of the session. You will then be asked to visit our website and register for your selected choir.  

Audition options:

You can now choose to do auditions either in-person or on zoom. Each audition is 10 minutes in length. For new singers, our preference would be to see you in person, but completely understand if online is a better option.
