Auditions

Auditions are closed for the 2021-2022 season, however if you are interested in joining the choir, contact Emma Ivory (eivory@grsymphony.org).

Please note that our COVID policies will reflect those of the venues we sing in.

Auditions for Melodia (grades 1-3) and Mosaic Singers (grades 4-6)

The audition will consist of two main components: vocal range and agility and aural skill. The director will lead the child in vocal exercises that explore the range, vocal agility and tone color of the singer. Then, a series of melodies will be played on the piano and echoed by the singer. Finally, a short printed excerpt may be given to an older singer to interpret. The audition is short (generally less than 10 minutes), painless, and even fun! Nothing needs to be prepared specifically for the audition, but if the singer wishes to sing something the director will be happy to hear it.

Auditions for Youth Chorus, grades 7-12

The Youth Chorus audition will consist of three main components: vocal range and agility, aural skill, and sight reading. The director will hear scales and vocal exercises that explore the range, vocal agility and tone color of the singer. Then, a series of melodies will be played on the piano and echoed by the singer. Finally, a short printed excerpt will be given to the singer to interpret. The audition is short (generally less than 10 minutes), painless, and even fun! Nothing needs to be prepared specifically for the audition, but if the singer wishes to sing something the director will be happy to hear it.
