HOW DO WE JOIN?

  1. During the school year, observe a rehearsal and/or attend a season concert. Schedule a voice evaluation. Upon recommendation from Artistic Director, enroll singer for a one month trial period. The purpose of the trial period is to ensure there is a good match - sometimes children enjoy singing on their own, but not in a group. After successful completion of trial period, submit registration materials and payment.
  2. During the summer months, schedule a voice evaluation, sign up for the trial period — or wait to visit the first rehearsal in September, the follow process above.
  3. Schedule an audition. (Please click HERE for audition information.)
