What is Select Choir & Glee Club? Select choir is a small auditioned group of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who show a strong interest in choral music. They are given the opportunity to perform more challenging music in a smaller ensemble. Glee Club is a larger auditioned group of singers who perform different styles of music in multiple voice parts while learning more about choral singing and their voice
When are auditions?Auditions will be held on Tuesday Sept 17 or Thursday Sept 19 immediately after school in room 121. Your audition should only take 5 minutes and you are free to leave after it. You should sign up for audition times before those dates.
What will happen at the audition? You will be asked to do two things:
1. Sing part of a song. It is up to you to select the song. Choose something that will show off your voice the best. It could be something you’ve sung in chorus last year or something as simple as “Do Re Mi” or “Happy Birthday”.
2. You will also be asked to sing a few warm-ups which will give me an idea of your voice range.
Auditions are FUN so don’t stress out!
Do I have to audition if I was in last year? Yes. I need to hear your voice to see if it has changed and to decide what part you will sing.
